MARK WE WILL MISS YOU.YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS AND IN OUR HARTS.
I have known Mark for 30 plus years and 24 of those years I so enjoyed him being my brother-in-law. Mark always tried to make those around him smile & laugh. When it came to his family he had such a deep love for each one of them. He was proud of all his children. His grandchildren were everything to him. Mark was a kid at heart and would spend hours just playing with and loving them. I know he taught his children, nieces, nephews, and anybody else how to swim. Mark was an excellent swimmer and he so enjoyed the family gatherings in the summer. I will miss all our times getting together as a family. The 4th of July gatherings, the times I visited from Ohio and he would make sure you all came to visit Aunt Carol. He would talk to me for hours about each one of you kids to make sure I felt like I had been there and apart of their lives. I love you Mark and you will be missed. Love, Carol Shuler Paxton
I send my condolences to the Winston family. Mark was one of my very good friends.I am sad that we grew apart and lost touch with each other over the years.It is nice to see though that he did well in life and leaves behind such a loving family.
Your SmileThough your smile is gone forever,and your hand I cannot touch,I still have many memories of the one I loved so much. Your memory is my keepsake, with which I`ll never part. God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart. Sadly missed, but never forgotten.
