In perusing the Boldt obituaries, I was startled to see Marcus' picture and obituary. I had contact with him, a few years ago, through AA. Please accept my heartfelt condolences during these days. Those of us in recovery are always hopeful that we can be clean and sober when we experience human life's final event. Marcus is blessed to have achieved that goal.

I have so many memories of Marcus. We grew up together in the same neighborhood and he was one of my best friends. We spent almost every day together along with the other neighborhood kids that we hung out with. We had a lot of fun together running around and for the most part, at that time, causing trouble. The thing that I will remember most about Mark is how he was such a gentle giant. He was so caring and always there for his friends when he could be. I just talked to Marcus the other day on facebook and he said he was fighting hard and that his faith was carrying him. I wish I could have been there for him. I told him that I would pray for him but I didn't get to say goodbye and that is something that I will live with for the rest of my life.
