So very sorry to hear about Mark's passing. I have wonderful, fond memories of Mark, as I am sure many many other people here at Hope Haven do. He brought so much joy and happiness to those here that had the privilege to know him. I can only imagine the joyous reunion in Heaven, too, that he had with his close friend that died last January. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to you Dixie, and your family. Deb Vande Vegte
