19: Dear Godek Family, March 15, 2012 As I sit in contemplation as to where to even begin, I would like to express my most sincere condolences during this painfully difficult time. My prayers are with your entire family, as you work through your loss. Although I didn't know Mark in the capacity most of you did, nor for even a fraction of the time, I will never forget the incredibly loving, understanding, kind-hearted spirit that completely encompassed Mark's being. After all, Mark was an "angel" who was prematurely taken from the loving arms of his daughters, girlfriend, family and friends without reason or warning; leaving us all to wonder "why," and suddenly asking ourselves, "How is it that we will be able to live without him?" It's the eternal question we will ask God throughout our lives, yet undoubtedly never fully understand. Although I have never personally experienced a loss such as the one your family is so courageously facing, I would like to share a personal story with you that I feel relates not only to Mark's passing, but also exemplifies the strength of spirit and true character that shone through to all who were given the gift of knowing Mark. When I was five my young, strong, brave, funny, loving uncle passed away in his sleep. Being so young, this was my first experience with death, and although I wasn't mentally prepared to fully understand the magnitude of such loss, I vividly remember wanting and almost needing an answer as to why God would take someone who was so loved and needed by so many people. (To step back a moment, my uncle was a carpenter, an athlete and an all around wonderful man who had a contagious smile and an enormous heart.) Why would God take HIM? After a slight hesitation I remember my mom saying "Kaity, God looked for a long time in search of a man as wonderful as your uncle. God needed someone with strong hands and a big heart to help build the angels a new palace in Heaven. It's not easy building palaces for angels; and only the most special, funny, hard working, talented, loving person would be able to help God complete such a project. After searching the entire world, God chose uncle Donnie as the ONLY person he wanted to work beside him. god needed the "Best of the Best" and that's why he chose him. I truly believe that although the angels may not be in need of a new palace, nor God in need of a good carpenter with strong hands and a big heart, there's something to be said about God wanting the "Best of the Best" by his side. Mark was ALL of the things God was looking for in a man to stand by his side. He was certainly the most special, funny, hard working, talented, loving man to all he had the opportunity of crossing paths with. It's no wonder that God had bigger and better plans for Mark; he undoubtedly defined that of not only a wonderful human being, but more importantly, a true "angel" among us! In closing I would like to extend my dearest sympathy to the entire Godek family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I also extend open arms and an open heart to anything the family needs during this time of mourning. Mark always had an open and and heart when I needed support,. It would be doing him an honor to know that perhaps I can be of such support if need be. God Bless! -Kaity
