Craig: I was so surprised and happy that you remembered me yesterday at the service. I worked for your dad for 16 years and don't know if I've ever met anyone more brilliant. Sorry I didn't see Mark. Love to your mom and I hope she feels better. She and your dad attended my oldest son's wedding. Coincidentally, he died one month after Lynn (which I didn't know until I read the obit). My condolences to you all.
