    Alice, Betty and all of the family:

    You are constantly in our thoughts in this time of your great loss and pain. Mark was a wonderful friend. I have always been grateful for his reliable friendship – he always wanted to know what he could do to help, and I knew I could count on him to show up and do what he promised. Mark would get it done, whatever it was. We will miss him. We hope and pray you will find solace and comfort in your collective love and memories.
