This is a Picture of my father Robert RX Lee Marker and his father, my grandfather Alfred St. Elmo Marker. They are standing on the second level in the backyard of the house in Santa Monica, where Robert was raised. Robert and his brother Gary were born and raised in Santa Monica. I(Jack Marker) was also born in Santa Monica, but I was raised all over the place. The house in Santa Monica was a safe place I could always go back to the home that was eternal. About six and a half years ago my grand mother died and about a year later we sold the house. I still drive by it when I am in Santa Monica and remember the home where my father grew up, where I grew up some of the time. I haven't been able to go by the house since my father (Robert Marker) was murdered.
My Grandfather Alfred Marker died peacfully in his sleep in his bed at home, in Santa Monica. I wish that we could have kept that house, I miss it.

Wow, the memories. I knew this fine man for 44 years and he never failed to be my friend. Now that he is gone I remember so many things he did for me. I was there at that house in Santa Monica, down stairs in his room. I was at every house he ever lived in. We were so close and I took him so for granted. I miss him more than words can ever say.
Love you Robert.

Jack, I remember so much from before you were born, lord my mind can't seem to stop remembering!He was the best friend a person could ever have, he always kept in touch with me, no matter who he was with, no matter where he lived at one time or another I was there too. He took pictures for me, he helped me move, he listened to me cry about my son and then my baby daughter. He designed my logo, he did all my art work for free of course, he was my great dear man, I miss him so...
Love you all,

Metaphysics is the finding of bad reasons for what we believe upon instinct, but to find these reasons is no less an instinct.
