Oct 12, 1970-Jan 19, 2010 It is with both comfort and sadness that we report the passing of musician Lumark "Mark" Gulley. Many folks around Dallas, Baton Rouge, Jackson, MS and the Mobile area will know Mark as a multi-instrumentalist and arranger. He was always writing and thinking about music. I can personally say that there was very little music that Mark was unaware of. I hope you all can take a listen to his debut solo CD called Printilla (2000). It was just a peep into what was to become. I can remember many encounters with Mark, where I saw his deep spirit and connection to his LOVE of music. It was always clear. Sometimes, so intense, that few could relate. Looking back he was that purist and perfectionist that we can all strive for each day. Being real, we also must learn that to everything, there is a season. Though only 39 years young, Mark lived each day for that day. It shows in his life's work. Funny how people think our birthday and passing day are the most important dates and always stamped on our tombstone; it is really that little dash in between that is most important. I hope that we all learn a lesson and pay closer attention to our health and bodies. Get regular check ups and stay close to our famlilies, friends, and loved ones. It may be the the biggest lesson we get from seeing such a talented and kind spirit go to the next plane. R.I.P. our friend and brother.
