    I am very sorry to learn of this news about Mark. Although a lot of time has passed since Mark and I dated, I still remember the kind and thoughtful family he had. I pray that God will comfort you during this sad time. You will be in my prayers.

    This is very sad news. I just heard about it on Monday. Mark was a great friend. I loved him very much. I hope that I haven’t miss the Columbia celebration of his life. He is definitely a person to celebrate.
    Much sympathy to his family.

    Mark could make me laugh like no one else. He joins a short list of people that were very special to me who have passed away recently. I know he and Billy and Mike will meet up in whatever lies beyond this realm and have a great time. Would very much like to be involved in his celebration service in Columbia.
