Memories Timeline


  1. You were a loyal and trusted friend all these years. My prayers go up that you are home and in a blessed place and your wife and boys find solace in knowing that you are home and waiting for them to join you some day. Rest in peace old friend, you will never be forgotten.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. This breaks my heart. Mark did several electrical jobs for me at my home and I really liked his great personality and the perfectional work he did. It is an honor to be able to say I knew Mark and I so enjoyed talking with him and hearing about his kids. May the Lord comfort you in this great difficult time. My prayers are with you.
    God Bless
