In Memoriam - Mark Cobb (Tenor)

Mark Allen Cobb passed away this morning at 8:05 am. He was surrounded by family and those who loved him desparately. A memorial service has tentatively been planned for Sunday July 15. The family will be present to receive guests from 4:30 until 6:00 when the service will start. His family requests that instead of flowers, that gifts be made to the Rogers Fund and Baptist Church of the Covenant.
