I just came across this obituary. I am so sorry to hear that Mark has died. I am thinking of you all, Mike, Roger and David. And, of course of the precious memory of your mother, Marion. A special friend to me. I know how deeply she loved all her “boys”.
Thanks Ted. Mark had a tough 5 months of cancer. His wife died of Covid in December.
The last couple of months he was sure mom & Ginny we’re still alive. I did all I could along with a great Hospice team.
You and Harry take care. Thanks for ur condolence.
Sorry for your loss Mike and Roger. Sorry for the late response, but you have our prayers and sympathy.
