Jim and I extend our condolences to you and the family. We have so many memories of Mark. We played a lot of bridge back in the day! Where have all those years gone? We will be thinking of you this weekend and praying for all of you during this sad and difficult time. Take care.

Dear Margaret and family. Just read the obituary of Mark's passing in the paper. May I say how sorry I am for this loss. Margaret and I shared several years as coteachers at Fletcher Place Preschool and you have a special place in my life and heart. I will be thinking of you and your daughters and other family who are your support and in your life and will miss Mark as well. Thoughtfully, Arlene Brooks
