"Louise, we are so sorry about Mark. We didn't know until he was mentioned in church yesterday. Such a shock and unexpected as we didn't know he had even been in the hospital. We will be thinking of you and family with our deepest sympathyi."

"Thanks for being a great grandpa, the best school bus driver, no knowing a single stranger and then continuing to brag about me to then about whatever sport I was in that season. I always enjoyed our time together playing golf with Uncle Gregg, and you telling me your way was the best way. I rarely remember you being angry, you were always happy and had a humble demeanor. I will miss grandma yelling at you to turn down the tv so we could have a conversation. Don?t worry, we will all help take care of your sweetheart and keep her as much company as possible. I will miss you, Rest In Peace Grandpa Mark ??"
