    Mark was a wonderful, compassionate soul, who touched the lives of many. We were neighbors from Wilson Street in Lafayette, Indiana.
    Angelia and the family, my prayer is that Father God will strengthen you all during this sad and difficult time. Mark’s beautiful spirit and personality will be missed. Second Corinthians 5: 8 states, We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord; this verse has always been comforting to me and I hope it will bring some comfort to you. God bless you.
