  19. I remember Bob Mark was our Prudential Insurance man as long as I can remember. The main thing that as a child, was he always had five flavor life savors to give us. As the years passed, Bob always knew me when he saw me somewhere. He and my dad would always have stories for each other. He had this story telling about when ESOP took over Weirton Steel and my dad retired. He told Bob “A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush”. For years every time I saw Bob, he would relate this story to me. May God Bless you with comfort that only He can give at this time..
