I was so shocked and saddened by Mark's passing. He was getting his life together. I was glad to meet him when he came to Baylis, sometimes he was so quiet but other times he would visit. I was honored to be able to make his casket flower ,where he had an angel with silver wings and the word "Peace" written on angel. I thing that described as Mark in Heaven with God in peace5
