We cherish our memories of Mark. When he married Jan, our niece, we gained another nephew. He was so polite and always a gentleman. We saw how much he loved Jan and his children, Luke & Sara. He will truly be missed by many. Now, I feel we have another Guardian Angel. He is in Heaven and will always be in our hearts. Lovingly, Aunt Gail & Uncle Paul in WI
