Hi, kids, (Mark and Rena)
I just now read this, am so sorry. I know this last year has been
a challenge. And thinking of you each one. I didn't know your Dad Mark, but know and love you kids. And my heart hurts for you. He sounds like a fine person and know he will be missed. He would have had to have been to raise
such a fine man as you Mark. Gentle Hugs,
Love and God Bless You.
