Angie and family,

I wish we could have been there to honor Mark and be with the family. Ed was in the hospital at the time. We think of you often and all the good times we had together at HomeComings. Mark was always so funny and so friendly that our family remembers him well. He was a good devoted Christian and you have assurance that he is with the Lord. God Bless you all. Love Kathy and Eddie McCarter
