We knew Mark and Donna over the psst 3 years that they resided here in Spanish Lakes. He truly loved his country and absolutely loved Donna. He wanted to be sure everything would be good for her once he departed this earth. We are very glad that he went quickly. Now he is resting in God's house with no more pain and suffering. Mark thank you for your service to a country you loved so much.
Donna will keep you in our prayers
