6/28/2002 - 11/9/2013This weekend we are suffering from a broken heart. Marco, our constant companion, filled our lives with joy and showered us with unconditional love and undying devotion. Although we take comfort in knowing that he is in a better place, one where he can run and play again, we are consumed with grief.

Marco was a Military Working Dog, one of our nation’s unsung Hero’s. I’ll never forget the day we adopted him. His trainer, Dennis, told us that Marco was “special”. That, we quickly learned, was an understatement. Marco was loved by all who came to know him.

Marco – you are, and always will be, missed every hour of every day. Our little boy; till we meet again.

Beautiful precious boy who I miss seeing in the neighborhood with his mom and dad. You touched our family!Deborah Kelly-Hoehn - November 17, 2013
I miss Marco more than words can say. I will always think of him every time we have "Marco weather." He was such a special, sweet, loving boy. I will NEVER forget him!Carolyn Kelley - November 13, 2013
My thoughts and prayers are with you.Casey's Mom - November 12, 2013
Yes, he is in heaven and watching over both of you. Do find some comfort knowing that someday you and he will reunite. it's true; and, without that belief, how else could we endure losing our loved ones.

There was an elegance about Marco that was undeniable.

We pray that you will find peace!

A beautiful boy and family, each lucky to have the other! Wishing those left behind peace and comfort and a restful sleep for their boy Marco.Christine Shibly - November 12, 2013
Our sweet Marco, oh how we will miss you! I remember when Bella and I first met you here in San Antonio. Bella must have been about 2 or 3 years old. She loved you the moment we met you and instead of wanting to go visit "grandpa", she wanted to go see Marco. He was great with her which made me love him more. Thank you for your service to our country and for warming our hearts these past few years.Melanie Benfield - November 12, 2013

I remember when I first met Marco I was a little intimidated by him. But after some time I recognized how special he was. Our jogs together where he took four number 2 potties breaks in the snow after I had rolled my ankle . He was such an intelligent and kind companion.Angela Fernadez - November 12, 2013
