  15. Chester Dixon says:
    My prayers are with Mark’s wife, his children, and grandchildren. I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know about Mark passing away until Sunday night. I would have attended his visitation had I known. Mark was a kind-hearted man, a hard working man, and a good friend to everyone that knew him. He took care of the hay on our small family farm since 1976 and though it’s been a few years since I have seen him, I am very saddened to know that he is no longer with us. The Lord must have needed another good farmer in Heaven.
