Willa, Glenn, Teresa, and Shauna, you all will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. It seems like just yesterday that Mark was telling me old "Log Cabin" stories, stories about my Daddy, and picking with me about driving the school bus. He will be greatly missed. God Bless you all...

We sent Mark off well he would be very proud. I went to see him before he left us and we had a good talk and prayed together and he told me that he wasn't no angle in his life but if he was able to change one persons life by helping them or making them smile then he would be very happy! Well I for one know he was very successful and I am honored to have know and Loved that Man!! I will miss you Bubba

I loved Mark dearly. Teresa sold me my house in 2004 and they welcomed me into their lives as a family member. He holds a very special place in my heart, my memories, and those I'll treasure always! RIP you big teddy bear.
