After God and His will, Marcus' family was the most important thing to him. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren making up bedtime stories and singing lullabies and nursery rhymes. He had a deep love for studying the scriptures and of music, and had a magnificent voice, whether he was making up little songs for his children and grandchildren, leading singing in church services, or his beautiful singing in numerous weddings and funerals. He had such a tender and loving spirit, and was always ready to help with his gentle wisdom. He portrayed "... love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control ..." (Gal 5:22) in all aspects of his life. Marcus can truly say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing." (2 Tim. 4:7-8). He will be dearly missed, but our hearts are comforted to know he is in paradise.
