Jan and family and the extended Freeman family, It is with heartfelt sadness for the loss of your beloved Mark. I had the gift to be around Mark for a number of family events (happy/sad). The last time I saw and visited with Mark and Jan was at his Dad's funeral. I remember clearly his big smile, bright eyes, hearty laugh and positive attitude and his wonderful wife giving family updates. Steve over the past years has shared stories and updates which I appreciate. I felt a special bond with Mark because our birth date May 17th. I meet the Walt and Ellamae family in 1968 when Steve married my sister. To this day each the Freeman family are special and a gift to many folks. I listened to Mannheim Steamroller-Silent Night this am in honor of Mark while feeling sad along with Mark 's strong positive spirit. Jan and family take care each other. Hugs to all.

A great soul is walking the streets of Heaven today. God bless you!

I am saddened to hear of Mark's passing. I had the honor to work with him for 25 years, and will always remember the smile on his face, no matter what. That smile could change your mood instantly. Jan, you sent me a message when Melody had her accident, and I still read those messages to this day. Yours gave me a lift when I needed it most, so I now send it to you in your time of need. "God is answering all prayers a little at a time". Melody and I send our prayers for you and your family, and may peace and comfort of the Holy Spirit lift you at this time and sustain you. David Neal

I am so sorry to hear that Mark had passed. Although it has been many years since I have seen him, I remember him as such a nice guy. His smile hasn't changed a bit. I went to grade school with Dave and Mark was a friend of my brother, Greg who passed in 1975. I have very fond memories of the entire Freeman family and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

We enjoyed talking with Mark on our walks around the Waterstone neighborhood. He always had great smile and a nice attitude about everything. We wlll miss visiting with him on our walks. Rest In Peace.

It was my privilege to be Mark's family physician for the past several years. I was always struck by his most pleasant countenance and cheerful smile, even in the face of most difficult circumstances. He never complained or had a negative attitude. If he was that nice and genuine of a person to those he met, I am certain the same qualities carried over to his identity as a husband and father and grandfather. I know he will be dearly missed by those so close to him. May you be comforted by God's presence and your love for Mark.

Mark was truly one of the kindest and nicest person we have ever known. His courage and bravery during his battle with cancer is something we will always admire. I kept his return to work note from his doctor at my desk for the balance of my career and anytime I began to get down I would look at that note and remind myself how blessed I was and what true work ethic and dedication was. Mark was an inspiration to anyone who was lucky enough to know him and work with him. May he rest peacefully in the loving arms of our Lord. God bless the Freeman family.

I had the pleasure of growing up with Mark and all the Freemans as we lived two doors down from them. I remember Walt working nightly on paving the back yard where in later years we played basketball. I remember sometimes helping him mix the mud. I remember playing army battles on the floor of the bedroom with Doug, Mark and David. I remember going to their house on summer mornings and wondering over to the upper Lewis Park for pickup baseball games with neighbor kids. I remember hitting a line drive which hit Dave square in the forehead and knocked him out for a few minutes. He was pitching and came to in a couple of minutes with no after effects. I remember the pigeon loft above the garage and the pigeons flying and tumbling in the air above our houses. I could go on and on. The Freemans were and are a great family and I remember all of them very fondly. I am sorry to hear of Mark's passing. You have our deepest sympathies. Tim and Debbie Boyle

Mark once told me (several years ago) he wanted to be known as a really nice person. As we know he exceeded that goal. We will all miss one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
