"Jeff, Suzy, and Angie, I am so sorry to hear of Mark's passing. You all were the "fun cousins" growing up on Charlene, and I am thankful all those wonderful memories. From when your house was first built, to you moving in, playing in the creek, climbing the "cigar tree," to watching my first color TV at your house and riding bikes, I am thankful for our days together. My prayers are for each of you, that God will comfort and sustain each of you in this season. God's peace to all. Rick Shipley"
