Mark Joust McCloskey, Gone Too Soon.

Yesterday, we lost a great man. Mark Joust McCloskey was a neighborhood legend, a war hero, a man who loved his family more than anything else, and he left the world very suddenly. He leaves behind family and friends who are shocked and devastated, and a little girl who was everything to him. This is for Mark’s little girl. Every dollar will go to Mark’s family so they can pay for karate, clothes, or whatever they think she needs. Mark was hurt fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The physical and mental pain our troops go through when they come home is hard to believe. The pain killers they put our hurt soldiers on only makes it worse, and Mark literally went through hell, multiple times. He found his heaven in his little girl, and lived every day for her. Rest easy brother. We’ll make sure your daughter has what she needs now.

....Quick edit, as a few people have asked. Mark’s sister Tara will be managing all money raised here for Sara. She is the only one with access to the account and will make all decisions. Thank you.
