There was a small breeze that crawled through the graveyard in Vallejo, California. It seemed that that breeze was honoring along with us the amazing man Mark Flaherty who died January 28, 2016 at the age of forty-seven. When we got to the site of the funeral we saw a group of people spread out and waiting for the hearse.
When the hearse came, Vivian, Mark's sister and a long time friend of Poor Magazine came out of her car along with her three daughters. They were greeted by friends and family for the funeral. When the serviced started they had an open casket for the family to see Mark.
“Mark was the kind of guy who helped people out” said a friend of Mark. After people payed their respects the funeral director lowered the casket into the ground along with holy water and multicolored flowers.
