Jon and family,

All Archers are saddened to learn of Mark''s passing. His sweet nature and good heart are remembered often from our times living in Leesburg during our youth. I have many memories of your mother encouraging me and my classmates with tales of Mark''s struggles and eventual successes with spelling lists. My brother Mark has regaled us many times with a fond memory of going to the races at Warsaw Speedway with Mark Gosser. God has graced our paths with few kinder and gentler spirits than his, and we know he will be missed. Yet, we also know he will find joy, and rest with our Master. I hope the Spirit will guide you through this season of grief. Jeff Archer, Mark Archer, Christina Archer
