      M and M Cookies, on behalf of the greater southern Utah population, I beg of you please ask someone to proofread your comments before subjecting the public to your jiberish. As for Mark Weaver’s family, I appologize for the preceding jiberish from M and M Cookies.

      Weaver family, I’m sorry for your loss. I pray you lean into God’s word and His promise that while you walk through this valley, He is with you.

    Mark was one in a million. He could always be counted on for some crazy stories and often doled out life advice as well as cool thrift store finds. He tended his animals lovingly and I think they will miss him as much as his friends will. Mark was a passionate guy and a true friend. We miss you already Mark! Toquerville will never be the same. Thanks for all the good times and we’ll carry your memory with us on this wild ride. Much love.

    Mark did a lot of kind things for us here in Toquerville. The most recent thing was that he gave us a fancy hot dog steamer. We’d all sit down and make our fanciest dog and talk about how lucky we all were to be exactly where we wanted to be and doing what we wanted to do. I don’t think I’ll ever meet a guy quite like him. We had lots of laughs, philosophical conversations, and more laughs. He will be missed.
