We are holding you all in our prayers. Although we have not been close to Mark in recent years he was a big part of our life. Loving memories of childhood and beyond will fill our thoughts of him. What an awesome gift to be able to see Mark (for Tom) and say good-bye. May he rest in peace and may your hearts be filled with peace knowing he is not suffering anymore. Grieve the loss and rejoice in the memories. Tom and Bridget Gray
