Mark was a great guy, he was proud of his daughters and loved those grandkids. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and work with Mark, we had some great times. I talked with Mark about Jesus on several occasions and he assured me that Jesus was his Lord and Savior!!! What a great comfort it is to know Mark is with Jesus.
May God comfort Marks wonderful family. Although he will be missed here on earth there is a great reunion in heaven awaiting those who know Jesus as Savior!
