Mark, mostly known as "the clean life" recently received some devastating news that his 26 year old cousin died this morning in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan while serving our country (USA). He needs all the love and support he can get at this time. There are no words to describe the pain a family must endure when they receive such ill news.
OMG Klara I am crying . YOu any everyone here on Hubpages are so wonderful. So many post . I am truly touched by everyone that has posted about my cousin. YOu all are truly dear friends. I love you all and thank you so much!!
Mark, we all spend so much time here that we get to know each other and become friends along the way. It's amazing to see how much we rely on the HP community whenever we are in need of strength, advice, distraction, or just plain venting. We can't lend you our ears, but we can lend you our eyes.
Words cannot fill the void or relieve the pain but its all we have to offer. My heart goes out to you Mark and to the rest of your family in this time of loss.
Sorry to hear the news of the loss of your young cousin, Mark. It is terrible to know that one more will not be going home. Peace to you and all your family.
I salute your cousin, Mark, and thank both of you for the price you have paid for all of us.
I know and feel your pain; my own cousin left us many years ago in Vietnam, although he lives on in our memories and shall not be forgotten.
This is truly tragic. I am so sorry for your loss, Mark, and will keep all of your family in thoughts and prayers, especially during these next days.
Mark, my thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. I am thankful for people like your cousin, who pay the ultimate price to maintain our freedom.
So sorry, Mark. All of us feel a share of your pain with this news.
This was him...
He served his country and made us proud. Too young, too soon.

You got that right Klara, the best people on earth. Linda is doing well and she said to thank you for asking and to thank you for your kindness Klara. Channel 6 news at six had a piece they did on Ryan and his coach in High School when he was a star in their Basebal team > I thnk they may air it again I hope at 11 pm . I rushed home because Linda said it would be on and I got stuck in Friday weekenders heading to the shore.so I only saw about 15 seconds of it. I am heading to the TVand see If i can catch it now.
