aw man. RIP Mr Wahlberg

This news is so sad. He had a huge family. My prayers go out to them.

um, how do they have a 6 year old AND a 6 1/2 year old??? That seems a little difficult doesn’t it?

How can you have a 6 1/2 year old and an almost 6 year old?
Condolences to the family.

My condolences go out to his children and his step children.

Awww! Not Valentine’s Day… Soo sad….

im so sorry. r.i.p. mr. wahlberg<3

Donnie’s first son is almost 15.

Nursing home? Dont these two have enough money to have kept the old man in one of their homes? They didnt have the room or money for full time nurse?



Hmmmmm, makes you wonder what he thought of his son’s racist exploits while he was alive.

who’s racist exploits? mark’s? donnie’s?
