I wanted to express what a truly beautiful gift was donated by Mark IV Landscaping, Inc. to enhance the memorial honoring Officer Ken Novak Jr. Officer Novak was taken from his family and community on April 8, 1992. He put his life on the line out there, keeping our town of Lansing safe.

What a wonderful act of kindness and generosity done by Mark IV Landscaping, showing the respect due to Ken Novak Jr. and allowing his memory to live on and the brave officer to never be forgotten.

Thank you, Mark IV Landscaping, Inc.
