Mrs. Tansey, I am a friend of Mark's from Oklahoma. I never had the privilege of meeting you or your beloved husband, Richard so I don't know the kind of man he was but I do know the son you raised. He is a man that will go to all lengths to help others, give you his all, and he is totally devoted to his family. That says alot of you and your husband and how you raised him.

I will be praying for you, Mark, Evan, and the rest of the family in the coming months. May God Bless and Keep you...
