Karen and Family....
Thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. May God give you his comfort and Peace. Psalm 46:10 has always been a comfort to me....."Be Still and Know that I am God".......may you lean on him through the coming months.

I will always remember the fun that all of the "Ma & Pa's" had fishing at Snake Creek with Mark and Karen. This is one of my fondest memories. Mark was always first in line when the first batch of Rocky Mountain Oysters came out of the deep fryer. He had to taste test them to make sure they were good enough for everyone else eat. He will be missed!! May God comfort all of you.
