Today I lost an old friend

I don’t even know where to start, I have so many emotions today.  My family (besides little JR) decided to go to the zoo to just walk around and enjoy the animals.  As we were walking around, Cassie, Marks sister texted us telling us the news.   Mark Kormylo is no longer with us!  I was so shocked to hear the news, I just didn’t  understand it.  How did this happen!  I felt immediate guilt that I wasn’t there for him, and I didn’t help him in his time of need.  I looked for a long time to find a photo of Mark, I didn’t want to borrow from anyone else.  I found this photo below of Mark holding my first born JR, just after he was born. He was so gentle with him, and always good to my boys.

I can’t really call him a friend as of late, I wasn’t there for him in his hardest hours of his life.  It’s been almost 8-9 years since we actually were hanging out and active friends.  We drifted apart, and sadly we didn’t talk much anymore.  Now, more than ever I wish I would have made more of an effort.   Lots of emotions, and memories playing back in many minds.  Mark was a great dad, and a good person, and many will miss him.  I will always remember our fun times together hunting and riding motorbikes.  In memory of Mark, I want to post a couple videos here that I created from the past.  These are old videos, I don’t have any new stuff since we drifted apart.  Nothing special, just memories.  RIP my brother!
