  1. Marcus as been on my mind. My name is Judy and I am the neurology RN that spoke often to him and after some ruff ruff encounters, realized he was just a big teddy bear wanting to live lite all that he could. Inspite of his disabilities, he accomplished so much and touched many of our lives. He always asked about my son, Marc, who graduated from UGA- their football teams were rivals. He even made a cd of one of the games for Marc. Marcus’s passing was a shock. I have no idea what the cause was but, I hope that he went peacefully and my sincere condolences to his family.
