His children, my cousins, Amy and Andrew of course are suffering the largest loss. Having lost my father last year, I can feel the emptiness, sadness, and uncertainty of the future they are experiencing now.
They have been left with the toll of providing him a funeral. He always attempted to provide whatever he could to everyone he knew and greatly deserves minimally, a simplistic farewell. Sadly, Marky Maypo the Muffin Man did not have a life insurance policy and recently retired from full-time employment, limiting his income.
On behalf of my cousins, I am requesting if you feel you are able to assist, please do so through this fund.
Please note, the amount requested is just shy of the actual amount for funeral expenses.
Visitation is Monday at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM and the funeral will follow immediately after at Sawyer-Fuller Funeral Home in Berkley.
The family requests donations to assist with covering the expenses, in lieu of flowers even though Uncle Mark loved the outdoors including the Beatles.
This is put together with all song titles from the Beatles which my Uncle Mark loved.
My Uncle Mark passed this morning
and he doesn’t have to "Carry That Weight" any longer
So lets take a moment to "Twist and Shout" and "Come Together"
as there is no "Crying, Waiting or Hoping"
Uncle Mark says:
"From Me To You"
"I Feel Fine" and "I’ll Be On My Way"
"I’m Only Sleeping" and "If You’ve Got Trouble"
Lie down, take a rest on a "Magical Mystery Tour"
When you wake, look up and see, "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"
That is where I am, saying "Good Morning Good Morning", "Good Day Sunshine"
I hope your "Golden Slumbers" reminded you of "All My Loving"
I am now "Across The Universe" and you can talk to me "Any Time At All"
"Because", "It Don’t Bother Me"
"Don’t Ever Change" just because I can’t "Drive My Car"
"I’m Flying" now, "Free As A Bird"
"I’m Here, There And Everywhere"
So let’s sing, "All Together Now" because "All You Need Is Love"
And I love each and every one of you and grateful you were "In My Life"
And "I’ve Got A Feeling" that every now and again you’ll hear me saying
"P.S. I Love You"
You will be missed dearly Uncle Mark. I love you!
