“The Divine White Light of GOD’ Love’ and Protection Surrounds ME.” When someone asked Mark what his name was, he would say ME. He would smile that big SMILE and Laugh and say Mark Ehrhardt. LOL He shared his birthday with Jessee James (American Outlaw) as he often reminded everyone; and, Raquel Welch (American Actress). Mark would say “I am not here for a Long time; I am here a good time while I am here”. Anyone who knew Mark would say, “Are you sure you are not Sam Elliott”? I whole heartedly send Prayers to Everyone, Family and Friends alike. I am sorry for your Loss.

I am so sorry to hear of Mark’s passing. It truly has broken my heart. For years I have been trying to find Mark. Way back in 1982, through 1986 Mark and I worked together at Standard Brands Paint Company. My husband was in the Navy and we were transferred to California. Mark gave me his cell phone number and I put it in an address book and placed it in a box to be shipped to California. The box was lost and I have been trying to contact/find Mark ever since. I even called Larry and Mary a few times and left a message to see if I could get Mark’s contact information, but I never heard back from them.
Mark was a wonderful person and will be missed dearly.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
