February 18 1966 - May 31 2008
This online memorial was created in loving memory of Mark Lafferty, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website. Please sign Mark's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Mark forever. We cherish every second we had with him.
Mark came into and left this world with the most beautiful silver hair you could imagine.
Though his life was short, he lived it to the fullest. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, golfer and trap shooter.
While they were in high school, Mark was a very protective big brother to both his sisters, Molly and Brandy. On more than one occasion he was known to run off any "Cy" that he felt was not good enough for his sisters.
Mark was a journeyman millwright and an accomplished welder. His first choice would have been cowboying, but he soon found out it didn't pay the bills, so he settled for a career in construction.
Mark played hard and loved hard. He was as loyal as they come and is so missed by his friends and family. His absence has left a hole in this world never to be filled. It has left a hole in our hearts to only be filled when we meet with him once again.
The love of Mark's life was his precious daughter Lauren. His last four years were especially difficult for him because he was only able to have her every other weekend. The time he was able to spend with Lauren was treasured above all.
DIVINE INTERVENTION ?
This our precious granddaughter, Lauren. She is all we have left of Mark. God sent her to us at Mark's grave yesterday, May 3, 2009. We had not been able to see or speak to Lauren since Mark's death. She had never been to see her daddy's grave until yesterday. It just so happened that we were there at that exact time. Call it what you will, fate or a miracle; I am just so grateful it happened.
Thank you God and Mark!
Today is February 13, 2011. It has been almost 2 years. I wonder if she knows how much she is loved and missed. It is so unfair. When will the insanity end?
Today is October 7, 2012. We still have not been allowed any contact with this precious child. There is no way she will ever understand how much we love and miss her every single day! Pop died without seeing her again. I hope I don't.
Lauren with her Aunt Bea. At last!
Our side of the family has so much love to give this child.
This is Lauren doing her favorite thing. She loves to ride horses!!
