The Chambers family continues to be in our thoughts and prayers. We've only known Mark, Jennifer and the children for a short time compared to others who have known them so much longer, but we would agree with all that Mark was a kind, compassionate man with many gifts and talents. We will never forget his kindness when he came to the hospital soon after our son was involved in a terrible car accident in 2009 and he sat with Bobby during some very difficult hours. We will never forget his smile and his love for music. We will never forget his passion to serve the Lord. I am reminded of this saying when I think of Mark -- "Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” We indeed will not be the same because of the blessing of his friendship. Thank you for sharing your Mark with us.

Jennifer, Jacob, Emilyn and Kenley,
I am so saddened by Mark’s passing. Our deepest condolences to you all at this time of great sorrow.
Mark touched my heart and soul from the first time I met him. He taught me how to Worship our Great God through music. He wonderful laugh and teachings are greatly missed! Mark left an indelible footprint on my heart and soul. The 2007 choral mission trip to Austria was one I shall never forget. Mark pulled us through and beyond what we ever imagined we could do. Teaching us difficult yet beautiful praise and worship songs in foreign languages. His huge heart for God and the incredible love for his family was apparent immediately upon meeting him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all now and in your days ahead. Thanking God his suffering is over and he is with his KING JESUS!

Condolences to the family and friends of Mr.Timothy Mark Chambers
may you find comfort from the God of all comfort
when you lose a loved one their are feelings of grief and pain
it can also be very overwhelming
but God's word the Bible reassures us of this at ( Revelation 21:4)
" And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more ,
neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore .The former things have passed away."
Very soon ,all the things that causes pain and suffering will be eradicated forever.....
sickness and death will be gone .....

our prayers and thoughts be with the Chambers family. He is in God's loving arms now and at peace. God's Blessings to all his family and friends.

I only knew Mark a short time from here at Beach Ford in Virginia Beach, but I could tell he was a God-fearing man and loved his family. Im glad I got to know him and my thoughts and prayers are with his family for making this time bearable. See you on the other side Mark.
