Mark's Coffin by Simon-Marks-Brother Mark's Coffin by Simon-Marks-Brother
Thank you all again for your kindest of wishes.
The funeral went very well today with the non-religious celebrant doing a fantastic job of capturing Mark's essence in some beautiful words.
I choose the music: Golden Brown - The Stranglers as Mark was brought in followed by Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones during a the slideshow of 25 of his artwork and pictures. Reward - The Teardrop Explodes was played during a pause for reflection and finally on our exit, Born To Be Wold - Steppenwolf. Everyone agreed that it ewes great music and Mark would have loved it.
As followers of Mark's work I think you'd all be interested to see what we did for Mark's coffin, so I've added the images on my page from the company that produced it using the artwork and Photos I provided from Mark's work. Again, he would have loved it and it was a fitting testament to Mark and his passions in life.
Please place any comments on Mark's deviantART page.
Thanks.
Simon & family.

I never knew he was a Wheeler. My children and Grandchildren are Wheelers. My first husband was Wheeler. He had brothers, Jack, George and David, sister Anne. Fred their father was from Dublin. They lost touch with George... He lived in the South of England...

It was really beautiful what you did for your brother Simon. Perfect really. Maybe a small smoke afterwards...

Maybe in a while we can discuss the Wheelers to see if there is any connection...

Please keep in touch Simon.
