Being a dad is for eternity.
I am committed to raise funds for cancer patients and services at Baystate Mary Lane Outpatient Center through the Walk of Champions.
I can’t do this alone – I need your help to reach my fundraising goal. There is strength in numbers and together we can make a difference! All funds raised remain local. Please make a contribution toward my goal in support of such an outstanding organization. Your donation is fully tax-deductible Thank you!
Please take a moment to say, "I love you" to those that hold a special place in your heart. Give them an extra long hug and squeeze a little tighter. Cherish every moment you share, laugh a little louder, listen to their stories, truly embrace the moment......it may be the last chance you have. I knew the day was coming and I thought I had prepared myself for it....I couldn't have been more wrong. It crushed me, in every way imaginable.
My step-dad, Mark Kokoski, wasn't just a step-dad....he was my dad in every way possible. I have known him my entire life. When my mom married him, he welcomed us kids into his home with open arms. He was always there for me, regardless of the issue at hand. I knew I could always talk with him about anything and cry into his shoulder when I needed to. He loved us all, unconditionally, without hesitation. He had his rules and if you messed up, he'd let you know for sure...the table probably had a dent from his finger tapping! After my mom and his divorce, he didn't just write us off....like we weren't family anymore. I visited him and Paulette, we played cards, etc n had fun together. We always stayed in contact and visited him on the farm...we were family.
I will forever be grateful for everything he has brought into my life. He didn't have to do any of it, but he chose to. Mark was not just a step-dad....he was and forever will be my dad. Miss n love you beyond words....
