    Joyce, Ryan & Family,
    My heart goes out to all of you, Marc filled our lives with so much happiness and laughter. I have spent the last 24 hours reliving some of the old memories we shared with one another over and over again in my head while crying and laughing. My family loved Marc as he was close to my brother Pat too. I will never forget his laugh – we had some great times. I am deeply sorrowed by his passing, we started to talk again over the past year or so after not talking for quite awhile, but when we last talked it was like we never stopped talking – sharing good times back and forth and laughing. I will never forget my friend and I will keep him in my heart for the rest of my life…
    Truly sorry,

    Whenever I thought about memories of high school, Marc was in most of them. He was always great kid. He just had this great aura about him that drew people to him. He was a fun person to have had spent a lot of time with. Even though you loose touch, it still hits you hard when you here that a dear friend that you share a lot of good memories with, is gone. You never think about stuff like this until it happens, and then you wish that you made the effort to stay in contact. And for that, I am sorry. I pray that Marc is at peace. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

    Joyce and Ryan,

    I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Marc. As you know we were really close growing up in all levels of school, especially High School. He was always fun to hang around with and laugh with. Even though time and work and growing up in general have seperated us when I heard this news it was as though I saw him yesterday. This is such a huge loss for your family and I can’t imagine to know how you are feeling right now, but know that we are all thinking of you guys and praying for you. He was a friend that will never be forgotten!!!

    I am so saddened to hear of Marc’s passing. He was such a smart, funny, loving person. I feel so fortunate to have had him as a friend and have so many fond memories of him from high school and college. He had a smile that could light up a room. The world has lost a beautiful soul far too early. My love and thoughts to Marc and his family. I pray that he is at peace and can rest easy.

  7. Amy DiGiovanni Densmore says:

    Marc was my cousin and my friend. My family is mourning the loss of a young, handsome, bright, loving, and devoted man. Marc was a big brother and a great son. We were a close bunch with deep conversations and stupid jokes. Marc loved children, my three girls were his loves. He would call to visit them, almost like play dates! They would play games for hours, until he was covered in sweat and out of breath. He carried their photos with him in his wallet. They will miss him every day.
    Marc and I ended every conversation and visit with an “I love you”.
    I love you Marc, I hope you are with Bocca and I will see you again some day. You are free and at peace.
    I love you ~
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft starlight at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there; I did not die.

    To Marc’s family,

    I knew Marc from college and he was a great kid. Very smart, caring, funny and handsome. He always had a smile on his face, even if he was in a bad mood by the end of the conversation you could get him to laugh. I am deeply saddened to hear about his loss. My heart and prayers go out to his family during this time of sorrow. May he rest in peace!

    Ryan and Joyce

    I am so sorry to hear of Marc’s passing. I was speechless when I heard the news. Although I have not seen your family in far too many years, I have only the fondest memories of spending time with Marc and you both. From my earliest memories the house on Arlene Ave. was practically a second home to me and your family will always maintain a special place in my heart. Please accept my deepest condolences and sincerest regards. Marc was a funny, warm and wonderful person and I know he will be missed.
