Mark's Song

by Stephanie Morris
(Santa Clarita Ca USA)

We first noticed the Dove in our backyard nesting on top of our TV satellite, on Saturday MARCH 27th.


Strangely it was also the day my Brother would have turned 52. My brother Mark passed away suddenly in July only 8 months ago.

He had a great sense of humor, and was in the "Music Industry" as a "SOUND ENGINEER", so you can see the coincidence between the two.

A day my family and Marks friends "Mourned" the loss of a good man (a sound engineer) born that day and the song of a "MOURNING DOVE" ...who is laying on her nest waiting for the Birth of her child....with only 1 egg seen.

I think this is a WONDERFUL way to let your family know that your brother Mark was and still is out there watching,listening, and still allowing Music to fill the air, letting you know how much your loved and how much you ALL meant to him in his life here on earth. God Bless.
