The family issued a new statement on memorials:

The outpouring of support from our fellow Oklahoman’s and others is a blessing to our family and a comfort during this very difficult time.  For individuals wishing to offer their condolences, in lieu of flowers or other remembrances, it is our family’s preference that you consider a gift to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Oklahoma.  This is something that Mark would have desired and is a fitting way to honor his memory.  

Include with your gift a notation that this is to remember Mark and his dedication to helping others.  Your gift will make a difference.
