ENFIELD, CT (WFSB) – A local father who is raising three children alone has received a large incentive and a large check on his mortgage.
Mark Bodley, of Enfield, thought his mortgage, Envoy Mortgage, would interview him for a newsletter, but they had something much bigger planned.
“We know that 2020 has not been easy for many, so to thank you for your valuable role in our community and to make life a little easier, we are paying your next mortgage payment, including taxes. On behalf of all the team members, we thank you, ”Leu Bodley of the mortgage company.
Envoy Mortgage is dividing $ 150,000 between 50 of its most deserving customers across the country, and Bodley was one of them.
Bodley’s 10-year-old daughter MacKayla said that no one deserves to be more recognized than her father.
“He tries to be our father with no one by his side but us, so I think he’s the best that ever was,” said MacKayla.
Mark is a single parent who raises three children, Markus, MacKayla, 15 and Michael, 4. His wife Danielle died after a sudden cardiac arrest in 2019.
“I think my dad is the most amazing dad because he deals with all these things and just tries to make us happy,” said MacKayla.
One of the ways Bodley made his kids happy was by buying a new home in Enfield last year with the help of Envoy Mortgage’s Debra Malcom.
“As soon as I found out, I literally cried. I was thrilled because of all the hundreds of people I worked with, he is definitely the best I would have recommended, ”said Malcolm.
“I never had a house this good before I said it. This house is special for us, ”said MacKayla.
MacKayla misses her mother, but she still misses her presence with her family in her new home.
“I would say that she is very proud because of everything that Dad did. I would say that she is very proud of us when Daddy just got up (sic) and took care of everything ”, said MacKayla.
