um mark passed away so i ain't even thinking about marking my guy you know i'm not i'm not checking in so i'm going through these different texts my condolences oh man , i feel so bad for you i'm like then so for some weird reason i thought maybe if i see this on tmz maybe it will solidify it and i saw it on tmz i was like oh and yeah it just tore me apart not just it tore me apart but it put me in the mood the first thing i saw was his face like his young face like that little uh wicked smile he had and i started thinking about us just playing football down the block us chasing each other all day on the block and, um, I was, you know, it was, it was, it just caught me off guard. or and I walked into one of the other rooms and you know I just broke down because it's like that, I'm just like, how can it all end like this? situation i guess he needed a heart procedure which led to his death yeah uh i mean you know no one wants to bury their kid before them no parent wants that so i talked to his mom and you know it sounded like I was rambling on to some big story about nothing, but I got the point that she didn't really want to talk about her passion, you know? so i was just on the phone with her and i heard the whole story for the last 20 minutes and it was a story about nothing but i understood what she was doing i was just trying not to think about what was going on and you know it's um it's unlucky because he was talking to his ex girlfriend shelly and he you know he loved shelly so much you know shelley was his heart um after he chased him and peppa broke up and you know shelly was his heart so he she was telling me that he he was telling her that he loved her so much and you know all these things and that it led to his untimely death how much she was telling him that she loved him and she said she saw him so you know you know we will miss Mark so much because so many people loved Mark.
Lots of people loved him. this whole front and whatever my thing with marcus mark was one of the funniest people me and mark we have so many inside jokes what happened to us is what happened to us was we used to go abroad and we hated going abroad , so we'd be there like two months at a time, so to entertain ourselves, Mark and I would stay up in each other's room until 3:04 in the morning and we'd make up all these characters, these crazy characters and make jokes with them. . and so, um, we made all kinds of jokes about a guy called mr pop, she was a billionaire who was funding us with money and all this kind of crazy stuff, so a lot of things that i missed, um, those are the things that I got lost, write it down.
It was like the conversations we had when he came to me about his breakup with Pepper how devastated he was and I told him that he was drinking the coke at the time and I made him laugh and all this soda went out of his nose and into his mouth because I choked up while being serious about their break up just so you know he and the fan come and go all the time and just argue about nothing. This guy had some of the biggest arguments about nothing. I like you know what, whatever, um, Mark was just a fun kid, he was a fun guy, you know, yeah, I mean sad, 52 years old, how does it feel to be the last surviving member of the fat
