Please help us honor the people and locations that are graciously hosting the various events of the weekend by practicing social distancing and wearing masks. 

Thursday, March 18, Mark Thornell lost his battle with bile-duct/liver cancer, but he won the sweetest of victories as he entered heaven and the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We are using this site to help communicate plans for a memorial service for Mark and as a place for friends and family to share stories, pictures, and encouragement about Mark with Kristen, Andrea, and all those who loved Mark.

We know that so many people love Mark and his family and want to express that love.  Here are some ways you can do that:

We covet your prayers for Kristen, Andrea, and all of Mark & Kristen's family that loved him deeply.

Please visit the Well Wishes area above and share your memories, prayers, and photos with the family.  This is so appreciated, especially for Mark's family members that aren't on Facebook or Instagram.

Kamran Ayagh of Quest Center has graciously agreed to coordinate providing food for Kristen, Andrea, and their out-of-town guests and family over the next few weeks.  If you would like to financially contribute to this, please contact Kamran at Quest Active Care, LLC:
(678)461-9337 (tel:(678)461-9337)

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Mark's honor to the YMCA.  Click on "Ways to Help" above to access the donation site link, or click here (
