COLCHESTER - Mark Halliday Buchanan, beloved son of Alan and Jennie Halliday Buchanan, passed away peacefully at home in his loving mother's arms on Monday, Nov. 4, 2013. Mark was born May 10, 2010, and joined our family on Nov. 1, 2010. At only 3 1/2 years old, he possessed more knowledge of love than most of us know in a lifetime. Markie enjoyed listening to music, kisses, snuggles and tubby time. He taught us all so much, without saying a word. Mark is survived by his parents; sisters, Jessica Buchanan and fiance, Ryan Beliveau, and Amy Buchanan Lumsden and husband, David; as well as nephews and best buddies, Brady and John Lumsden. Additional family members include his grandmother, Earla Halliday; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was greeted at Heaven's Gate by his very special cousin, Layla Clyburn MacDonald. His family wouldn't have been able to care for Mark without the tremendous support of the Howard Center, Dr. Joe Hagan and his staff, the VNA and DCF. Visitation will be held Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, from 12 to 2 p.m., followed by a celebration of Mark's life at Stephen Gregory and Son Cremation Services, 472 Meadowland Drive, South Burlington. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Mark's name to the children's charity of your choice.
