Isabella came home with Mark on her heart. The project for the dads got her thinking a lot about her Papa. But she dealt with it so well! She really amazes me. She told me how she did a project that says Papa and there is a picture of her to put in the word. She seemed a little sad at first, and then she decided it would be a great idea to put the project in the playroom with a picture of Papa in it. How amazing is she? She also came home and drew a picture of our family and Mark with angel wings and a golf club.
I picked her up today by myself so that we could spend some alone time together. What a great day I picked! I think she really needed it after today.
She also mentioned to me that she heard Marks favorite song on her teachers phone...I don't know if this is true but she said it was amazing. We always find ways (and God always send us little signs) that Mark is with us...

We went to get a dessert at La Madeline and then went to pick Anna up so she could see her school.
Anna had been waiting for me for a while and was sitting on the teachers lap when we went into the classroom. I let Bella walk in without me and go up to her and you should have seen Anna's reaction...I really wish I had video of it because you would think that she had not seen us in a was so heartwarming to see Anna get so excited and with tears in her eyes hugging her sister because she could not belive Isabella was in her school! Then she saw me and kept running from Isabella to me yelling our names and tearing up. It was one of the sweetest moments of my life....I can only imagine what it will feel like to see Mark again. I find peace knowing that at the end of our wonderful life here on earth we will have reunions like this in heaven with all of those that we have lost and love so much.

Hi Mariana. I am Collin Hays, and I work at Baptist St. Anthony's Hospital in Amarillo.

You don't know me but I got to know Mark when he was at the Inline Group. I was a client of his.

I was with him just days before his tragic passing - he was in Amarillo and I remember that he left his briefcase in my office and I ran down the stairs and out into the parking lot and yelled for him, gave it to him, and that was the last time I saw Mark.

Mark was a great guy and we always liked to talk Tech and Nebraska sports together.

I was deeply grieved when I found out about Mark's death and his family situation with the two girls, and today when I found your blog I have become deeply grieved again.

However, I am so encouraged by your blog and how you all have come through this. Mark is proud I guarantee it.

I am so glad that you have found a new love, too. Again, Mark would be very proud.

Thank you for taking the time to write the various blog entries - I hope to make my way through them.

Take care, and God bless you.
