Very sad news to all of Marks friends. (Kram666)

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 23, 2012, 3:17 PM
I visited Marks homepage and discovered this message left by his brother.

"This is Simon, Mark's brother, with the terribly sad news that Mark passed away last week.
This was a huge shock to us all.
I helped him set up his PC with all his drawing tools so knew how much he adored producing his bespoke digital artwork and how much the Deviant art community meant to him.
On his behalf I'd like to thank you all for the friendship and support you've shown and would ask you to pause for a minute at 14:20 on Monday 1st October. (British Summer Time)
With Kind Regards.
Simon."


As Mark often quoted.

        "I felt the call of the jungle, primal and clean.
         I felt my connections to the wild in every cell in my body;
         realized that I am among the trees,
         the plants, the grass, the sky. The trees know me and I am never alone.
         We are all one and we exist everywhere. It was like coming home
         to the greatest welcome back party imaginable.
         The love and purity of the trees surrounded and dazzled me.       
         I went outside to lie in the grass.
         I needed to be there, to feel the dirt beneath my feet,
         the stars above my head and the wet grass in my fingers.
         The stars were like diamonds  in a velvet black sky
         their light radiating beams of positivity and love down to us all. "


RIP my dear friend.

Mark is a very good friend , and will be forever
I don't like to say " he was"
Because to me he still lives , but in a different way.
Good bless MARK . Friend 4 ever
