Marcus, we will never know why you chose this path but I hope you found the peace you were looking for. I hope you're looking down at what is going on with the outpouring of love and support from your friends and family......nobody can be loved as much as you are! Your smile, personality and laughter fill my heart with joy. Your joking around with Coby and Devin is something I will never forget. You are missed but will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace. -- Uncle Tim Lehman --

Please come by the car wash on Saturday and help celebrate the life of Marcus Rondez.
