MARK DOUGLAS LAMM
14 Dec 1959 – 17 May 2009

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’ sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

Mark, we have missed you every second and every minute of every Day since you were taken from us on this tragic day two years ago. I miss my “Alter Brummbaer”. I miss the twinkle In your eyes, your heartfelt laughter, your passion for life. We Just wanted you to know that you will always be part of us and You will always be missed. Love now and forever Your loving wife Beate and your loving daughter Shaelyn And all of our extended family RIDE FREE FOREVER!!!

” Forever 21″

Time marches on,
the days go by too fast,
It’s not possible that already
five years have passed,

No farewell words were
spoken,
no time to say goodbye,
you were gone before we
knew it,
and only God knows why.

You are gone but not
forgotten,
although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within us,
forever in our hearts.

You are missed so very much,
Dad, Mom, Kaikane and Kalei
