It re- minded me how much Mark loved Christmas decorating and putting up all the lights. As he got older, he would help his grandma every year, getting her tree and putting up her decorations. I know my Mark is an angel in Heaven but your thoughful act also reminds me that there are truly angels here on earth if we just watch for them. Again, thank you.
