Dear Joan and family, 

 I send my condolences in this time of great loss.  There are no words that will comfort you as much as the memories that you and Mark shared, so hold on to them and your family as you heal.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.   I met Mark years ago at the bowling alley as our dad's worked together and bowled.  Mark was an awesome person- somewhat of a legend in the local sports world.  His stories will live on forever as will his memories of love for his family.   I'm truly blessed to have known such a great person and hope that great memories will get your thru the days ahead.
