Mary, I'm sad today as I found that Mr. Goldman had passed. I enjoyed our chats as I checked him in for office visits at Apex. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Words cannot express how much I love you and how much I am going to miss you. Thursdays will forever be "our day". Every time I eat breakfast I think about you. I don't that breakfast will ever be the same without you. I will cherish every moment that I had with you and I feel so grateful that I was able to spend those Thursday's with you for as long as we were able to. For as long as I live when ever I go to Famous Amos, Denny's, Grinders, The Metro Diner, and Nicklyn's I will always think about you and remember of all the wonderful times that we had together and all the stories that we shared. I will hold all of our time together near my heart and I will smile when I think of all the times of us driving around after breakfast. You are going to be greatly missed by all and even more by me. Your house is not the same without you in it. It feels as if something is missing as soon as I pull in the drive way. Everywhere I look in yalls house I see you and all the stories and visits that we shared through out the years. I will smile every time I see an AT&T remote for all the times that I came over to fix your remote when you couldn't get it to work, even those at 10:30 at night :) There are so many stories that I have of you that I will pass on to David and Makayla, and as I share them I will smile and miss you a little more...Until we meet again.

Love you more...

My heart is so saddened to have learned of the loss of my dear friend Mark. My late husband and I spent many wonderful hours with him and Mary. I am surrounded with memories, for almost anywhere you look in my house, you see the results of Marks talents. He built the great room, and replaced every piece of baseboard and molding in my house with wood that he made into trim from an old barn he found somewhere in Georgia. I can't tell you how many chicken feathers I picked out of the old weathered beautiful wood. And he will always be in my house, because before he closed in the wall in out beautiful den, he scratched his name and the date on the side of a can of Bud and encased it in the wall. He can always come back for a nightcap. God bless Mary and the family. God rest your soul Mark, and don't get in too much trouble up there with Don. Dotty Curtis (Jacksonville, FL)
