In honor of Mark P. Cormier Jr. & Lost fisherman

In honor of Mark P. Cormier Jr. we are trying to raise money to give him a proper vigil and to fulfill the needs he was attempting to fill. 

Mark is one of the most compassionate people you could ever meet.  He could make the saddest person grin, an all around family man, and a shirt off his back kind of guy. The best son, brother, friend, cousin or partner someone could ask for in this life. Mark had a very old soul, he enjoyed the simple American things in life. A major love for cars, the ocean, and Kurt Cobain.  My oldest brother meant the absolute world to me anybody who knows him would agree that he had a way with words. He could make a stranger feel comfortable, when first meeting him its already like you had known him for years. Mark was a true friend, a stand up guy, an honorable man. 

This tragedy was unimaginable for us, like it is for all fishing families. We are creating this go fund me account to honor not just Mark but those who were lost at sea while making a living for their loved ones.

It is a certain type of man that is called to work on the ocean, this rare breed of men risk their lives to ensure their families futures. When something like this happens it brings to light just how dangerous the job can be. 

We Honor Mark, those who have lost their lives, and the many other fisherman who continue to work, despite the risk.

May God bless you all <3
