Guestbook

My uncle mark was unique person. He liked his personal space and he liked his coy pond with his coy fish, he loved anything to do with fishing or brass pro shop. As a child I spent most of my weekend at his house for a few hours, and I will forever cherish that. One thing I will never forget is that he could put a smile on your face no matter the time, the place nor the day. He will be greatly remembered & missed.
