Mark called in with some very sad news.  His little brother John passed away yesterday.  As you may know, John has been battling cancer for quite some time.  A couple years ago, the family thought they were going to lose him, but John kept fighting and made a remarkable recovery.  Now, his struggle is over and John is finally at peace.

Paul has known John since he was just a kid.  Back in the early 90's, when Mark and Paul had only been together for a few years, John would come work on Paul's ranch.  Paul was reminded of a time when they couldn't find John.  They went out looking for him, only to find him sitting in the driver's seat of a big truck they used to haul hay.  John would later drive a truck for a living.

Mark will be spending this week up in Great Falls helping make arrangements.  Mark lost his sister a few years back, so this is a very tough time for him.  Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
