Mark was one of the nicest persons I have ever known- always a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. His wonderful family should be so proud of his many successes- LIsa, Jennifer, and Anthony , you have been blessed to have such a great man to lead the family- it is so sad he had to leave us so young. God had a plan and we all will see him in heaven because he was a true angel on earth! God bless you all.
