This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Mark Kouza who was born in Michigan on October 17, 1974 and passed away on June 30, 2008 at the age of 33. We will remember him forever.
Mark was a WONDERFUL Husband, Son, Brother, Uncle, Cousin, and Friend. Mark's life was always filled with laughter and smiles. Unfortunately, Mark's life was taken away by cancer. Mark's battle began the day his cancer was detected til the day he passed away. He never gave up, but God's will was too strong. Mark's life consisted of alot of things but the most important things to him were His Wife, His Family, His friends, and his Favorite Sport... Hockey. He worked day in and day out to create a wonderful life for him and his wife.
Mark will always be known as the sweetest and most loving man around. He always put his family's needs ahead of his. He had a heart of gold and his memories will live with us forever. Even though God took Mark away from us, most of us will never forget his smile that lit up the room or his amazing laugh.
I believe that God only chooses the best to be with him and he chose Mark. Mark, I love you with all of my heart and you will always be a part of me. My life will never be the same without you. Although we can't be together on earth, you will always be in my heart. Please watch over us and guide us through this difficult time.
Since the age of 4 or 6 you've been a best friend,
who would of thought it would be til the end.
You were always there til whenever you could,
I always knew you always would.
Time flew fast and a lot of memory's too,
the drinks flew faster never just a few.
I gotta say you are the man,
I luv you bro your legacy will forever stand.
Marky you've always been real never ever fake,
everyone's pulling for you even the kmarra pillagha at penny lake.
You liked your beer never ever wine,
you'd say "get me a goose on the rocks bra....... tell her extra lime".
I've seen you stop every puck in site,
I know you will stop this one keep up the fight.
All the boyz love you not to mention May,
GOD.... grant us a miraculous recovery every day we pray.
We've been through thick we've been through thin,
But whatever it was you made us win.
I wanna thank you for who you are,
Your the BEST of the BEST for sure by far.
GOD PLEASE SEND HELP BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MUCH TOO LOSE,
HERE'S TO YOU MARKY, WE LOVE YOU KUUZ!!!!
Here i am in the middle of the night,
Awoken from no sound, no fear, no fright.
Can't help but to be pissed, mad and sad.
But for you no more suffering and for this I'm glad.
Last month we were hanging but it was in your sight,
You knew all along we were going to lose this fight.
I said "Fuck it Mark for us do whatever you could",
"He looked at me with a smile and promised he would".
You hooked us up the last four months at least,
I know now it was all to prepare us for the grief.
I'm trying to put on a front and fake a smile,
But there is no hope bra, its going take a very long while.
I've lost before and will lose again,
But come on GOD not my brother, NOT MY BEST FRIEND!
