    I adored Mark – Back when I lived next to Kim and Mark he would always tell my husband “Happy Wife – Happy Life” and he totally lived by that standard! RIP Mark – you will forever be missed but we will see you in Heaven!!!

    Always had a great smile and disposition. Best times were fishing, especially us two listening to Marshal Tucker and CDB from Indy to AR, then got caught up in fishing tourney. And the concerts….nuff said! He was certainly a happy soul and will be the same in Heaven. RIP. Mark.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. News travels a little slow for me out hear in Napoleon. From what I have read Mark sounded like a fabulous husband.
    As you once told me, “stay strong Kim.”
    Pray you have found solace.
