Mark...yours is a life gone too soon. From the time I could remember, you were a part of everyday of my childhood. We shared a bedroom, piano lessons, choir camp, Sunday School, musical instruments, Schwinn bikes, the same schools and much more. This family took great pride in you as you grew into a decorated US Navy sailor and we will miss you more than words can express. I hope you are finally driving the train of your dreams, nonstop, full head of steam into the night sky. Kerry, Karla, Amanda, Andrew, Morgan, Nathan, Jillian and Philip.
