  • As a next door neighbor on 36th Street in Pine Bluff, I remember a sweet, mannerly, and handsome young man named Mark... who always had a big smile and a friendly greeting. Years later, Mark and I met in Little Rock and, once again, I was touched by his kind presence. I believe that God knows when to "raise us up on Eagle's Wings and hold us in the palm of his hand." I know that Mark is wrapped in the eternal love of God and will experience the peace that passeth all understanding.
    My prayers are with Mark and his family.
