Mark was a dear friend, a way-shower to many in a common fellowship and a faithful and loving son. I will miss his ability to turn my frown upside down and remind me there is a Higher Power in charge of all that seemingly was wrong at that moment. He fought hard to stay, but in the end, he accepted his journey had come to the end. He will be an Angel to many I’m quite certain!
