My memories go back to his days at Kiddieland pre-school. He was such a sweet little boy and always brought smiles to our class. I use to video him in our classroom along with the other class mates and have the fondest memories of him. What a handsome man he grew up to be. My prayers go out to the Goffena and hope God helps your family through this terrible tragedy. God bless you all. Will keep you in our prayers.

So very sorry to read of the terrible accident and loss of your Marcus.
Our earth is full of pain, suffering, and sorrow. Losing a loved one in death was never part of our Grand Creators purpose for humans.
God has promised to reunite us with our loved ones and to do away with our greatest enemy death.
Isaiah 25:8: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken it."
Revelation 21: 3,4 promises: "With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
May the hope in these scriptures bring you comfort and strength to endure during this difficult time. Please see jw.org

Words cannot express to you both how much Scott and I want you to know that our hearts are breaking for your loss. Marcus was an amazing person. His smile lite up a room. His hugs were like big bear hugs! Our grandson Candin (Nick Tucker's son) loved his Marcus! All children reacted to Marcus like that. He had a special personality that children loved! Your son made a difference in every person's life he met. Marcus will be greatly missed but never forgotten. You raised a wonderful son. Prayers and love to you and your family.
