    Cathie and family, we send our deepest sympathy on your loss of an incredible husband, father, grandfather, brother and more in Mark. Thank you for sharing his life with the Moose Fraternity all these years. His wisdom, generous heart and spirit of service blessed so many, including the children at Mooseheart and seniors at Moosehaven. It was an honor to be part of the same Pilgrim Class as Mark in 2013. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Cathy, family and friends,
    I was so saddened to learn of the loss of Mark. I haven’t known Mark very long, but he treated me like an old friend, the day I met him. I believe Mark is resting well after a tough battle. I hope soon, you’ll find peace and comfort with the wonderful memories you built together through the years. If there is anything I can do to ease your struggles, I hope you’ll call upon me. May the Lord bless you, one and all.

    Cathie, Mark was one of the first person we met when we joined the lodge. You feel like family though the membership of the moose. Remember attending his father’s sad funeral and him telling all of us how he met you attending the very happy and joyous wedding of yours and Mark, most of the events of convention and I will never forget the cake he made me for my birthday years ago. He will be missed.. It has been a little over two years since Marvin has left us there is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him. If there is any thing I can do please let me know. Love ya
