Condolence: To Marks family,
I’m sorry to hear about Mark. When he was our mechanic at Oskaloosa I gave him a bad time & he would get even and I asked him all sorts of questions about being a mechanic after all that I really felt safe driving my bus knowing he was the one that fixed it.
I can still hear him saying it’s ok you’ll get there and back the problems fixed.

Condolence: “He is not dead”

I cannot say, and I will not say
That he is dead. He is just away.

With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since he lingers there.

And you-oh you, who the wildest yearn
For an old-time step, and the glad return,
Think of him faring on, as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here.

Think of him still as the same. I say,
He is not dead-he is just away.

by James Whitcomb Riley

Deepest sympathy to all!

Condolence From: Joe and Judy Keirns
Condolence: To Mark's kids, Bryan, Blake and Gina and their spouses, his grandchildren, and his brother's Marty, Phil and their wives and children. We are so very sorry for this loss. It's just so hard to believe that Mark's time on earth was up, and it was time for him to go. Yet, my heart just sank when I saw what he was going through. No one should have to endure this horrible illness. Someone that was always full of life, and always a jokester, he seemed to truly enjoy life. Remember the good times he had, and those you had with him. They will help you through this. He is vibrant and well once again! Thinking of you all! The Keirns family
