    Death does not define us nor does it stop us from being
    Those who took away his physical life forgot about his spiritual one.

    Marcus went for his GED and passed - his diploma came in the mail about a month after he was killed
    He never got to see the diploma and that's too sad.
    He had the most beautiful color of blue eyes and a handsome smile to match!!!
    To the person who likes to delete the coments left here; you can't kill him twice
    and by deleting you are only making his memory stronger - so therefore he lives on!
