Pickard Mark Charles of Eagan, quietly & swiftly stepped into eternity this week. His beloved Shadow never left his side. It is with deep sorrow & utter disbelief that we say our goodbyes to Mark, our Son, Brother, Uncle & Friend. In his much too brief journey of 43 years, Mark shared his uniquely, tenacious spirit with all who crossed his path. The depth of his being was expressed in his exquisite poetry, his stunning photography & his lifelong passionate quest as a humanitirian. The ring of his laughter will echo in each one of our tomorrows & his promise is in our hearts. With his untimely passing, we stand in honor & celebration of his journey. His mentor & relationship horizons were broadened when they respectively brought into his life cherished step-parents. Mark will continue to exist throught parents, William R. (Marilyn) Pickard & Rita M. (Robert F.) Clatt & their children. Mark's siblings Peggy Schroeder, Mary (Scott) Andrews, Wm. Rodney (Leslie) Pickard, John (Stacee) Pickard, Patricia (Jim) Poupore, Patty (Dean) Ellingson, Sandie (Michael) Kreitz & William Clatt; further, he walked with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces & nephews, countless dear friends & endless acquaintences. Memorial Mass of Christian burial Monday 1 PM, Washburn-McReavy, Nokomis Park Chapel 1838 E. Minnehaha Pkwy. Mark's family requests that you bring each & everyone of your precious moments with you. Interment quaint & private. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers. ``I move through the forests & over the hills, to a paradise only seen, by the strongest of wills''.
