    My very deepest condolences to you and your families.
    I’ve been friends with Mark for over 20 years. I left him a message on his birthday. So sad to hear of his passing. Great guy and I will miss him.

  6. Paul and Suzie I love you guys and went to Mass this morning for Mark…..May Gods perpetual light shine on him and all our family who have gone home. I remember and miss the family reunions at Ewing park….but that is why our Parents (and Debbie today) went through the trouble to have them (to make those memories) At Mass that is what I reflected on! …..My Dad, Gerri and CJ’s prayers are with you both. Tough year for the Stiles people.
    Covid is keeping us cautious with Dad and my Mother-in law but we will honor Mark and give to the American Cancer Society….Love you guys Casimier
