Dear Jane and All Mark’s Family,
Though I didn’t have the privilege of knowing Mark for long, his infectious smile and warmth won my heart instantly. He was so very brave! He definitely thrived on his time spent with his ‘card buddies!’ My heart was touched deeply to have witnessed the love which He had for his Family ~ and equally to be privy to the love and devotion each of you had for Mark! My prayers and throughts will remain with you,
Coral Miller, (RN)

A tribute to my brother Veteran and friend! 34 years ago I met Mark at Eglin AFB, FL remembering his dedication to service and commitment to the defense of this great nation. I will always regret not being able to reconnect with Mark, remembering his smile and friendship we kindled! May your family find peace and comfort in the Lord! In Christ, Jeff and Thessely Stahl
