  1. Mark — this was a long fight and you lived a very good life. You were a picture of resilience as you kept bouncing back from so much adversity. You were also a very lucky man to have so many people in your life who supported you — especially your mother who did everything possible to make your life comfortable and get you the best of care. Much love to you in your new life!
