God keep you in His Glory Forever. I never met Mark but knew his brother. He spoke always so lovingly of his kid brother who " loves his job and wants to catch all the bad guys." I still remember telling his brother on the phone how wonderful he is but to be cautious and careful because we never know who we come across. Mark did his duty still even off the job and saved lives. God Bless him and his family.
