As Mark,s father I am heart broken that we had lost contact,due to divorce.I know I could have helped him,perhaps that was what he wanted a shoulder,which I would have gladly supplied.The sad thing is knowing nothing of his adult life,any achievements,possibly his own family,his interests,his desires.Sadly now at my age I will never know,I have tried but with no success.God Bless My Son.
