Mark Bello

**PLEASE CLICK BUTTON BELOW TO READ MORE**  Dear family and friends, it is with our deepest sorrows that we inform you of the unfortunate death of our beloved son/brother, Mark.  He left us on Thursday, August 18th and our lives will never be the same.  He brought so much energy to this party called "life," and we can't thank him enough for all of the love, laughs, and good times that he shared with us.

We are so blessed and thankful for the outpouring of love and support which we have received from all of you and it is the only way we are making it through such a difficult time. 

For those who have expressed a desire to give a donation, we have created an account (please see "Ways To Help" tab at top of page) in Mark's honor.  We will be donating the proceeds to the Maine Community Youth Assistance Foundation (MCYAF). MCYAF is a 501c3 non-profit organization and community coalition which works to prevent adolescent drug and alcohol abuse and promote positive mental health among teens in Maine Township, Illinois.  You can read more about the organization and their mission at the following website:
