"Dear Dean family, I am sorry for your pain, and loss. I would like to share with you something that has given many comfort at a time like this. You can find real comfort in what God has promised, such as in John 5:28,29 -He promises that he is going to resurrect all those who have ever died, back to life again here on earth. And all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. You can read about this in Revelation 21:3,4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26."

"Mr. Mark is one of the few honest straightforward men I have ever been privileged to have known. He was a trusted and true friend to me. To his family I want you to know the great respect that Mark earned in this world. I like you and many others will greatly miss him. But knowing his faith I am more happy to know he is at peace with God."
