I miss you, love you and will never forget you. You have been my most cherished friend, and will always have the most special place in my heart.

I grieve for you and your family, who love you so well. You were truly blessed by them, and they by you.

Tell Esther I send my love, and hope we will all meet again for dinner!

My tenderest love,

Mark occupied a father figure role starting around 1993 and I learned many things from him, the first being unconditional friendship. He truly went way beyond the role of a friend and he, along with many of his friends had a major impact on my life. The only picture that possibly exists is when Mark and I took a plane ride across the Grand Cayon. If this is ever found, I would appreciate being allowed to get a copy.

He is loved and he is missed and my heartfelt wish is that his family and friends keep his memory alive as he was a remarkable man.
