    I am so hurt. I spoke with Marc less than 3 weeks ago. I am planning my wedding for September and Marc and a mutual friend have been helping me, referring limo services, halls, caterers, etc. He is such a kind, respectful, humble person y’all. I still can’t believe it. What a beautiful life was taken. I can’t wait until who ever did it is captured. How can people be so evil? What a beatiful life they stole from us. RIP Marc.
