Our family is so honored to have shared so many memories with your family. Mark will always be a great guy, his chuckle was always heard and it was contagious! He is an awesome Dad whose legacy will never be forgotten. He also was a wonderful team roper who was always thoughtful of his partner. One of my favorite memories - wild cow milking! Love from the Becht's and Ehalt's.

Julie, you may not remember me from Minolta, but I surely remember you. When I saw your photo and the FB post, I just had to read more. I am sitting here so saddened for you and literally sick to my stomach knowing the grief you are feeling. I married my high school sweetheart six years ago and finally can experience the kind of love you and Mark appear to have had. I know it has been a very long time, but I just had to reach out and let you know that I will say a prayer for you tonight . Be strong....and live on....for your sons. Darlene Young

Ellen and Charlie, I offer condolence to you both on the death of your son Mark. Even Though I never met him I have known both of you for many years. I feel so sad when a young person dies before their parents, it seems so unfair. I will be praying for you this week, Joe and Elaine Roberts Nicholasville, KY
