To the Cottrell Family: I was shocked when I learned of Mark's passing. I worked with him at the Kesselring Site. He had the kindest face and heaven is so fortunate to have him as one of their own.

God bless all of you and take all the strength from your savior above and use it to heal and move on. May God be with you.......MJ Kiernan
