Marc will forever be the sweet friend of my brother, Greg, hanging out in the house on South Park Dr that used to be his.  When we reconnected several years ago, his sweet spirit was still evident, despite all he'd been through in his adult life and career in the military.  Heaven will be lucky to have such a bright light shining there, and we left on earth see things a little dimmer. My heart goes out to all the family and friends of this kind and generous man.  - Ann (formerly Holly) Hawkins McGregor

Dear Lisa and Jacobson Family:    I am so very sorry about Marc.   I just recently learned of his illness.   I went to junior high and high school with a Marc.   I will remember him as being a friendly, nice and extremely funny classmate - a schoolmate that was loved by everyone.   He always had a smile on his face.   I am so sorry for your loss- he will be missed by many of us.

Marc was my first crush in Mrs. Tomkies kindergarten. I did cartwheels for him and
Kay Emmons who also liked Marc,  pulled my hair. End of that story.
Many, many years later, we reconnected and I was a very lucky girl to have been chosen to attend a few very important events with Marc and his family.
And what happened in Vegas, stays in Vegas baby. RIP my friend ??, Love, Kathy
