    Mark & Family,
    It is with deepest sympathy that I write these words. May God be your rock of strength during this most difficult time. Although I have only had the pleasure of meeting Mark & Wendy, and not having the opportunity to truly know them, I do know of their character and the love they shared together. Give praise for the life she lived and the lives she so genuinely touched. Lean upon not your own knowledge and understanding, but that of the Lord! Heaven gained another angel! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    My sincere sympathy goes out to your family. May the True God, in time grant you strength and comfort, so that you may feel a measure of peace during this difficult time (Philippians 4:6, 7). For now, may fond memories and the love and support of your family and friends sustain you.
