Thoughts and prayers to all of you. May our gracious Lord bless and comfort.
Carol Golden Guidry

Always love you Mark, remembering you when you were little and I used to keep you, we’d play in the dirt, you’d just talk and boss me around on what to do and how to do it.Amy and I aggravated you just to see that ugly cry face you’d make, then get in trouble with Linda for making you cry! Teaching you that “tcha” saying and how to throw your arm out to proclaim some sort of decree - Linda, Amy and you know what it was and your orange swimming floaties at the beach and pool at Sandpiper Beacon. So many things and so many good times. One of the last times we talked it was on the was back from the Dollar Store, you, me, and Dennis were listening to a radio show recording you wanted us to play, that you said was just the funniest thing you’d ever heard. We all just laughed and laughed, I remember you’re saying, “Oh, I love to laugh now, I sure do, I love to laugh.” Well I know that right about now you are probably making somebody laugh, or are laughing at something that’s being put on for just your entertainment, because you deserve to have all the good and great things Heaven has to offer. Love you much, my friend, and will be glad to laugh with you again one day.
