From our friends at Seattle Mennonite Church:  “We knew Mark first as a neighbor, who was tirelessly working on the exterior and interior of an apartment complex, in which he lived. Long, long, days of work over many months. His strongest desire, and the main topic of conversation, was for the well-being and care of his son. For a season, he had not been allowed to see his son, and that broke him up. He worked so hard to jump through the hoops that would allow him to spend more time with his son, and for a while it worked out – but when his son was moved by family to Ocean Shores and then to Florida – when his deepest love was not in reach, that was a hardship. His love for family and hopes for his son never faltered.”

If you have memories or photos of Mark to share, please post a comment.
