In Mara’s words, you have all lost a “giant of a man” and that leaves a giant void. Fill it with the knowledge that you, his family, were his everything. Fill it with the love and pride he had for each and every one of you. Fill it with the memories of the joy he brought to your everyday lives with his sense of humour and compassion. Fill it with your many wonderful memories. Marek left an everlasting legacy. May he Rest In Peace. You are in our hearts during this difficult time.
