    Cheryl-I was saddened to hear the news about Mark. Over the last few years, while working for the two of you, I had come to know Mark fairly well. It was always a pleasant experience working around him. He was one the Cardinal fans that I liked! He even made me a Cubs wind chime! I will miss him. Dan Glenn
