BeckyLee Vales is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Mary Riley.
It is with great sorrow and heavy heart that we must announce the passing of beloved father, husband, brother, and uncle Mark Vales has passed. After a long battle with diabetes, he has left us and is now belong side his mother Josephine and father Raymond in a heavenly place. A man who has not only given life to three beautiful children-now adults of his own, but also cared for the children of his wife as if they were his own, because they were. Though he was not the perfect man, as no one ever is, the life of Mark was a truly blessing. Imprinting the lives of so many near and far. Being the best person he knew how to be. Let us remember him as that man. The man who who took his daughters and even his niece to bible study. The man who tried to find a light in life and also shed the light on others. The man who believed there was more out there in life. Who knew there was a greater God and a greater good. May God guide him through the pearly gates of heaven and protect him from evil. May God repair his soul and deliver him strength now that he is free from his sufferings. May he Rest In Peace and never be forgotten and remembered for all the good he has done. May he know and see that he was and always will be truly loved and forever missed. Let us pray:Lord, Make me a channel of thy peace- That where there is hatred, I may bring love; That where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness; That where there is discord, I may bring harmony; That where there is error, I may bring truth; That where there is doubt, I may bring faith; That where there is despair, I may bring hope; That where there are shadows, I may bring light; That where there is sadness, I may bring joy. Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted; To understand, than be understood; To love, than be loved. For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. It is by dying that one awakens to find - Eternal Life. The Lord's PrayerOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
