    R.I.P Mark. You are and always will be a true hero. Mine and your family have become friends now... Ryan was taken away from us just like you were taken from your family. We have come together to remember you both as the truly great hero's that you are. Your Dad is a really lovely man and your sisters are lovely too. They are all very proud of you Mark, everyone is, just like we all are proud of Ryan.

    Goodnight and sleep tight mate.
