PostSubject: My Precious Angel Mark   Fri Jan 21, 2011 3:02 pm

This is my son mark - richard


Mark was born 21 years ago with Hydrocephalis (water on the brain), he spent the first 10 weeks of his life in intensive care and even then we could only have him at home for a weekend at a time until everyone was satisfied hed be ok.

Marks whole life was an uphill battle, he had a lot of developemental delays, he needed one on one support for everything , and he also developed cerbyl palsy due to the shunt they put in his head to help drain the fluid .

I WASNT A WISHY WASHY GIVE UP EASY MAM,
from the get go i pushed and pushed to ensure that mark would be the best that he could be, i was not gonna take it on the chin that he should be hospitalised or allow him to become a vegetable, and trust me, i had to fight hard. not the authorites but mark himself , who was quite happy to let folks run after him, and friends and family who thought i was too hard on him.

Long story short, mark ended up feeding himself, steering his own wheel chair, climbing the staris on his chin, backs on his hands and his knees and could talk the hind legs off a donkey (infact donkey off shrek springs to mind, that was marks charector to a T ) LOL.

Mark loved life, he loved people and loved to be out and about, always learning something new, something to suprise us with.
Mark touched the hearts of everyone he ever met, no-one thinks of him without a cheeky grin or a silly comment that made us smile.
He wasnt daft either, oh lordy no, he was the best player of people il ever know, he was charming, sweet , funny and sly as a badger if it meant getting something he wanted lol.

He loved music, he loved all music old and new but the 60's era was his favourite and boy did he know them. (hed have made a great musical quiz partner )
He sang like a lil choir boy until he hit around 17, then the voice dropped and never regained balance from that up and down screetch / to low bell dragging sound , but it never stopped him, he even laughed at himself sometimes lol.


We recall his last year with us, hed grown into a fine young man without us even noticing, everyone always thought mark was my youngest because hed been so small ect, but hed started shaving, had a girlfriend and was in college, hed grown so tall yet we never really saw it as he was in a wheel chair.

We take so much for granted its untrue, we must learn to cherrish everyday our loved ones as we dont get second chances once they are gone, so whilst it breaks my heart to think of him away from us, i cant help but smile too everytime i think of him.

So now hes away singing and dancing with the angels and no doubt creating havoc now that he wont have his wheels to hold him back , love you my lil man, always and forever . xxx

My Marky-

Theres a voice within me, a guidence, a melody that continues to potray it's lingerance as an ongoing tune. A voice, an exsistance never forgotton. A light, a soul so brave, the most immense inspiration that has, and will ever play a part in my life. One person, one overpowering personality that never failed to make others smile. A soul so strong, a life of constant struggle, and ongoing battles. In my life i was blessed with a miracle, someone so special with a smile that could melt a thousand hearts. I am so proud to call him not just an amazing and unforgettable friend, but the best big brother any little sister could ask for.

My brother, my world..
Now and forever.

Hats off to you and your family for allowing Mark to become all he could. As I read your words they were all so familiar to me. We truly are blessed to have the experience of these unique soulful individuals that not only share are lineage but also our hearts.
Much love to each of you and a wink toward heaven for Mark. xoxo M

It was 3 yrs since mark passed on the 16th of january and to be quite honest, although we have muddled by some how, i just wish i could get out of this bubble im in and move ahead a little bit.

Its amazing how much loosing someone can rip so much of yourself away with them, and the crawling back out from this numbness is the longest and slowest battle ive yet to achieve.

We are greatful everyday that we still feel mark around us and talking about him regularly keeps his memory well and truely alive, we can smile and laugh when think about him due to his wonderful charector he left imprinted on everyones mind, and we even imagine him laughing at us when we are tearful because thats just the way he was, he just loved life.

Any way im just rambling on now so il close here,
Bless you mark xxx

I love all you and I know January is a particularly hard time when it comes to Mark. I just want to pick you all up and squeeze you so hard you wouldnt believe. Though I never say, because I know it doesn't compare I love and miss Mark so much its unreal. I've said this to you before, but when I think of memories of Mark, sometimes it's like for a moment I forgot the sadness of losing him and it's like losing him all over again. Its brief, but weird.

Anyway today I got some letters and things of Mam, things I had from uni and kept at hers when I moved back there. There was letters from Gemma and card wishing me luck and allsorts, but it was the letters from Gemma that struck me the most. One she was so young the letters are comical and I will have to show you... but two she was talking about Mark's day at school and how he learnt maths from touching things on a wall and she said that if thats maths she wants to go back to school lol It was funny and yet I broke down.

I think that sums Mark up for me though, all of his memories are the funny ones his immense humour in the face of such pain sticks out a mile and though sometimes memories hurt they also make you laugh.

I hope you dont think Ive hijacked this, I just wanted to share how much Mark will always mean to me.

Love you all so much x x x

I saw the photos Wen. Mark's probably taking photos himself & showing them off to his new friends. Never got to know Mark, but from what I've read, that sounds about like him. :)
