Karen Blakely left a message on October 23, 2018:
I would like to extend my deepest condolences on the loss of your husband, father, brother, grandfather and uncle.

But be assured, God has given us his personal promise found in the Bible at Revelation 21:4, where God tells us that very soon he will do away with death and sickness from the Earth forever, and then he will resurrect Mark to perfect life here on Earth, surrounded by family and friends, which has always been God's purpose for mankind and for the Earth.
