This griefheart is in honor of Mark Thomas Skellett, 21, who died by suicide just 14 days after his birthday in Richmond, Virginia.
From Denise Fiato, his mother
“Mark gave to everyone no matter what. He had a love of books and animals. My friends enjoyed talking with him because he spoke eloquently, and could talk about any subject.
HIs love for animals had gone too far when he came home with 2 pet rats. EEEEKKKKK
He was a very kind soul who thrived on helping others no matter their situation. He was well liked and had many many friends. His funeral was standing room only with the amount of friends he had.
They even had to stand in the lobby because there wasn’t enough room in the chapel of the funeral home where I had his service. I was amazed of all the people he had touched in one way or another.”
