I wish I could be there, but have no way. Also, I did not know him long, I did know him well. For the time that I did know him. I am glad that I had met him. He had a great since of humor. I going to miss how he always wanted me to fix his phone. Wish I could of had chance to hangout with him. His sister Margret is a wonderful sister. I remember how she showed him the ropes where I work. We are here for the family. I am here as well. He will never be gone, because he will always be in our hearts, and he will never be forgotten. Mark your in a more beautiful world now, with music, and beautiful story that you had wrote. RIP God Bless you brother.

I would like to offer my most sincere condolences to the family of a kind and talented man. I proudly share with Mark one of my fondest memories of when we and other close friends played several songs for our school. It would be the first time that I would experience the bond of being a member of a band. Thank you Mark.
