Mark will be missed by all his neighbors but mostly me. We would sit on each of our porch’s and talk all the time. It was also away that I would check on him and him on me. Last Christmas a group of us decided we wanted to decorate our homes, so Mark and George (another neighbor) got out all my Christmas decorations and lit up our court. It won’t be the same this year. Mark you will be missed. Ashley and family my prayers go out to all of you.
