    So sorry for your loss. Although we lost touch when my dad was transferred to Illinois, I still remember when we played baseball games in the backyard, listened to music on the porch in summer, and did all the things that boys did and could do at that time. They were good times.

    To Mark’s family. So sorry for your loss. I had many great memories with Mark playing one-on-one basketball at his house on South Street as well as on the playground at Riley Elementary School. Some real fierce battles at both places. He was a good guy.

    Our condolences to the family. Mark’s wife Jeanie grew up across the street from us and our girls were playmates and schoolmates. We met Mark when they married. We are sorry for the loss in your family. Blessings and may God comfort you and give you peace in your loss.
