    Mark was my first cousin. His mother and my father, James Lee Rosser, were siblings. Whenever we would go to Beaumont for a visit, my brothers and I would stay at Marks house. Uncle Ken would always make burnt pancakes for breakfast. Mark was always good to me and I enjoyed being around him. Wish I had known him in his later years.
