    Marcus was an amazing man. I had the pleasure to work with him and he taught me how to drink hot tea in the morning. He would always bring a big bag of different teas and frozen chicken quesadillas. When the weather got real cold he helped make sure my little office area stayed warm. He always made sure to make me smile and showed me so much respect. He spoke about his beautiful baby Amber and all her accomplishments and just how amazing she was. He took such good care of his wife Candiace. He loved his family so much. I wish this was a dream. I’m so sorry it had to end so soon. Sending love and positive thoughts, vibes and prayers to his family. Definitely miss him.
