Mark meant so much to me. I knew it would be hard, knowing he is no longer there, in person for laughter and inspiration, and gosh it hurts! I was so blessed to know Mark. I wish I had known him better, but I treasure my bit of his friendship. He makes the world feel like a good place. I'm so grateful to Donna for bringing him into our family and sharing their precious life with me.

I miss you. I didn't realize how much I could miss someone that I never spent time with in person. Mark was a wonderful friend and confidant. The way he looked at life was both optimistic and pragmatic. I'm lucky that I got to know you Mark. Rest in peace my friend. Heaven has got another angel.

I am sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in Psalms 29:11, knowing that in difficult times like this, God gives peace and strength. DM
