  1. Mark’s help was a tremendous blessing through the years, especially during his brother-in-law’s illness and after his death. Many fond memories of Mark’s ornery shenanigans and the fun times with all our kids growing up together. Prayers for your healing after this tragic loss.

  2. May you finally find peace. You will be sorely missed from every persons life you have touched and those who never got the chance to know your truly unique sarcasm. People ask me where I got it, and I tell them it is from growing up with prankful cousins.
    Love and miss you
