To the Derico Family. I sincerely apologize for not being able to attend the services for my friend Mark. Mark, Sean and myself were classmates and good friends. Though I am sadden for Mark's escape to Heaven I am also pleased to know that he was loved by wife Mary, children, family and many many friends including myself.
