Dear Bertke Family, I have all of you in my heart at this time. You're such a wonderful family and Mark was a very big part of it. I can only imagine the loss you are all suffering at this time, he was a father, a husband, a brother and a friend to so many. I will always remember the fishing trips, the campfires, the stories and the fun times he shared with all of you. I know he will be deeply missed forever and ever. May you find comfort in the memories you all shared with this powerful man.
