A final good-bye for Paul Patrick

     Paul Patrick Marks was a son, brother, godfather, cousin, nephew, and friend.  He is part of two very big family that love him so very, very much and now miss him even more. He was only on this earth for a short 30 years but he has made a huge impact on all of our hearts!
      He is the first and only son of Paul and Cheryl Marks.  His parents have been together since they were 12, so by the time Paul was born 12 years later, there was an amazing amount of love for him.  18 months later Paul was given a sister and their happy family of four was complete.  Paul and Colleen grow up side by side always best friends and as close as can be.  Both children were born and raised in Somerville, Ma.  Paul attended Cummings School, Lincoln School, and then Somerville High.  He received his high school diploma in 2003. In 2008, Paul became an Uncle and Godfather to Nathan Francis Marks.  
      Computers and gaming always came very easy to Paul so he made a career out of. Working for places like Boston College and Apple Inc.  I don't think there was a day that went by that you couldn't find Paul in his room either on the computer or playing video games.  He was the first person to show his godson how to hold a controller and he taught him all about Batman, Superman, Teenage Mutant Turtles ect.  Paul and Nathan were more like best friends then uncle and nephew, but I know how much they mean to each other.
        Paul is going to be missed but he will never be forgotten.  I can say for sure that there is only one Paul Patrick and there always will be.  Paul deserves to have an amazing final good-bye.  Any amount, even pennies, prayers, will help us be able to do that for him.  Thank you so much for giving the time to read about Paul Patrick's life.  
            I know that the Marks and Collins families have gained an angel.  Please keep us in our prayers and thank you again for any help that you can give.
