Jerry, Pam and Marks Family:
Sending Thoughts and Prayers to all of you. I worked with Mark at Streaters back in the 70's. He was a nice person. I remember that he always had a smile on his face.
My Sympathy to the Family too for Kathy's passing. I didn't realize she had died. Take care and God Bless.
