Geocache Description:

This cache is a tribute to MCD, his parents and his friends.

You'll find a log book here and a few pretty rocks. (Please bring your own writing instrument) Take a rock but Please do not leave anything. We'll replace the rocks as they're taken out.

quote from woodwalker9 -

"MCD-Mark Clement Daniel, aka markrocks. Mark was a fantastic young man that loved life and loved geocaching.
He was your typical 13 year old boy who loved to run, jump, and climb on anything and everything.
Yet, Mark was a little "different". Mark had a neurological disorder called Asperger's syndrome. Asperger's, sometimes dubbed "the little professor syndrome," is a mild form of autism with a curious medley of characteristics: narrow, sometimes obsessive, interest in particular subjects; average to sky-high intelligence; verbal adroitness; difficulty coping with change; clumsiness; unusual sensory perceptions; and - most evident to peers - striking social ineptitude. The vast majority of sufferers are boys.

Mark, along with his mother Topkitty98, really got into geocaching. Almost every weekend they would jump into their jeep and head off to hunt down another hidden treasure.

Mark died on October 24, 2004, but will live forever in the hearts of everyone who knew and loved him. This cache is dedicated to him with the hopes that others, even though they may never have actually meet him, will become aware of what an outstanding person he truly was. "

NOTE: Because Mark loved rocks, I have included in this cache some smooth, polished rocks (I'll always make sure there is one in the cache). It is my hope that everyone who finds this cache will take a rock. Carry it in your pocket or purse, place it on a table or shelf, but each time you look at it, remember this great young man and think, "Mark rocks".

We couldn't say it any better - so will leave it at that!

We took our first "rock" near a cache that Mark had found and carry it with us. Sentimental? Yep - we are! Embarrassed by it? NO WAY! May "Mark Rocks" caches spread far and wide across the state! Please take a rock for Mark.
