I am so sad to have only found out today that my roommate and teammate at Montreat-Anderson left us earlier this year. I wish I'd have stayed in-touch. He was such a great guy, with a great smile, and was loved by so many. I never knew him to have a single enemy. Though late, Mark and his family will remain in my thoughts and prayers and I wish Mark peace and comfort in heaven. God bless. - Brit Linkner

Just don't seem right signing this page. Sure have spent many years of fun times and laughs. It was never a dull moment and always such a great laugh when we got together. God Bless Wayne, Martha, Mike, David and Nancy. You all continue to be in my prayers. Don't ever want to question God, but this seemed to be way too early. There were many more laughs and times and people that needed to see that smile. Take care Bro! Till we meet again.

I am so shocked and sorry, I just learned of this today. I've known Mark since kindergarten and he was always such a sweet and humorous guy. I guess one of my fondest memories was in the 6th grade and he and another boy were trying to do handstands and the other boy went to do his and kicked Mark in a very sensitive spot..I had never seen anyone turn green before..but he just laughed it off after a few minutes. And the party we had at his house and I was scared to play the game we were all playing and he gave me a compliment trying to make me feel better...he was something else..I'm in a total state of shock I just can't wrap my head or heart around thoughts and prayers to the Henderson family and the many friends that Mark and I share. Mark, I hadn't seen you in years but I thought of you often...I will miss you my friend and will see you again one day. Much Love...

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

We are still numb with grief over the passing of our "adopted" son, Mark. We met Mark through our son, John Ormiston, and Mark always called me Mama O. We know the family has lost a wonderful son, brother, and uncle. His friends have lost a loyal and caring friend. We never saw him when he wasn't smiling and upbeat. He was a kind, generous soul and we will miss him every day. May the wonderful memories he leaves with all of you and all of us help bring his spirit into our lives everyday and teach us the importance of loving your fellow man. Rest in peace, Mark. Your "adopted" parents, Tad and Polly Ormiston
