My condolences to the Baldwin family over the passing of Mark. Mark was a friend. I knew Mark at Duke Law School. Mark was already a Marine in law school and I suppose that is why he was happy and self assured, unlike most of us. He gave me advice I will always remember: wear glasses and a class ring and people will think you are smarter and more acceptable. I did neither and probably suffered for it. He was a good man whom I will always remember. May God bless the Baldwin family in this time of need. John H. (Jack) Hickey, Duke Law School Class of 1980.

To Debbie and Family,
Please accept my deepest sympathies during this difficult time.
I had the privilege of working with Mark for 16 years. Throughout this time, Mark taught me about the law and about life. I will treasure these memories always. He was a wonderful man, I will miss his big smile, and will forever remember the great music he played for us at work.
I wish you peace to bring you comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to hold forever in your heart.
With Deepest Sympathy,
