Mark was a good man...and he lived to a ripe old age of 91! Not everyone has that privilege!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

Love to you both,

To the Family --So sorry to hear about the death of your loved one. We want to share a comforting Scripture with you taken from Isaiah 25:8 where God promises that soon He will swallow up death forever. We look forward to the day when all of our love ones will be resurrected back to life--John 5:28,29
