There are to many memories to share them all. We as cousins all went our separate ways after spending a lot of hours together growing up. I cherish the memories we got to spend together growing up. Today not many families get to grow up with cousins the way the Cootes family got to. Later in life it took my Aunt ( your mom) getting sick for us to meet again and I am thankful for all those minutes. I miss your text and I miss texting you making sure we are ok and sharing our memories of the one and only " Frankie " Rest in Peace Mark

With Love Always
your cousin Jill

My heart is broken. Mark and I have been friends since we were 12 years old. I reminded him recently about a note he wrote me in school. It said at the end, "bye bye don't cry. love you love 'til I die."

Rest now, my sweet friend. Til we meet again.

Mark was not only cousin, but my first best friend. We shared so many laughs, stories and dreams together on family and summer visits to Arlington. You will be dearly missed and remain forever in my heart. I love you Mark, may you Rest In Peace.

Around 12 years ago, I lived in Mark's backyard pool house/guest house for a couple years before purchasing the home I currently live in, just 5 minutes from Mark's house. Mark was an amazing landlord and became an amazing friend. I had such fun living there and having him so close to talk to. He was always so funny, kind, thoughtful, considerate, trustworthy and always so helpful. I really connected with him and loved Mark like a brother, and enjoyed sharing life with him. He also became very close with my husband, Les, over the years, as he also worked with Les doing property management and pet care for us. We are so very upset he is gone. He was way too young to say goodbye. I can still hear his voice and his laugh. He always made us laugh and smile. We will miss you Mark! Prayers of comfort for the family as you also mourn the loss of Mark.

Mark was a friend for decades. He was a warm and caring person but I think it was his appreciation of humor I will miss most. Someone that can appreciate my jokes is a rare and valuable addition to the human race. He will be sorely missed.
