Mark in Thought:
Psalms 23:4
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will not fear NO evil for GOD is with me. GOD rod and staff they comfort me.
Mark was a strong, powerful, intelligent, wise man and business man. 
Out of everything Mark has experienced in 62 years, he put action to the will of GOD daily by practicing love kindness and forgiveness, feeding the hungry, housing the homeless, and helping those in need. So I can hear our Father GOD saying "WELL DONE SON here's your ticket to your eternal home." Mark has received the ULTIMATE PEACE. 
Sleep on brother take your rest. We LOVE you, but GOD LOVED YOU BEST!
