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.
