I'm so sad to learn about Mark's passing, and feel so badly for all of his family ... Chad, Courtney, all of Mark's siblings. We know he's in a better place, with Sheri, Bob and Georgia and everyone already in Heaven.
You could not meet a better, more helpful, kind and good man, and I'm proud to have been 'Walk's' friend for at least 51 years.
Rest in Peace, Mark. We'll hit the basketball courts above the clouds someday. Save a spot on the team for me. — kimball hendrix
