  1. Mark, we met in 5th grade down at your grandparents house. 4 houses down from mine and across the street. I knew right away you were going to be a force to reckon with. And … you were all the way to the end my friend. Time and miles apart want able to break the soul tie that you and I had. It was truly from God. The way we reunited in the nick of time(i was so Thankful that God used me for you that day) Years later,more memories and then we went to the movie one day both of us crying inside the theater and so happy just being alive and to be believing in Christ when we walked out. I loved how we were both always allowed to speak our mind through our friendship. We could get mad but we knew we would always love each other and be friends and be there for each other and for Ken. How blessed I was to have 2 such wonderful, loving, honest, good hearted friends. I miss you both terribly and think of you both all the time, all the time. I wish we could have had more time, more adventures, more talks and more hugs, more laughter. I hope y’all have been fishing everyday in the sunshine full of smiles. Until we meet again Mark and Ken. I love y’all always.

  2. We were quite the crew back in our day, Mark Wilson, Mark Hobgood, Mark Reed and myself (Mark Maldonado) ! Every time somebody said Mark we all turned. I’ll always cherish that time in my life and never forget the wonderful memories. I frequently tell stories about our days at the Golden Light and the crew that made it special! Mark Wilson, you will be missed!!

  3. Remembering an old friend. We sure had some fun. Remember I did win that trophy from you playing pool! You were an original, Mark Wilson. I will miss you.
