Mark Hager was my friend. He was my "Best Man". He was my brother, and I loved him. Whenever I tell stories to strangers of my days in Wichita Falls, TX I always refer to Mark with his earned title, "My best friend from High school". Our paths took different courses and distance and decades separated us, but nothing will diminish my love or memory of the man that was my friend. I am a better person for having known Mark and called him friend and when I think of him, which I will often do,

I will smile.

To Mark's family and friends please accept my deepest sympathy and heartfelt sorrow. I feel your loss.

Mark and I grew up together in Wichita Falls abd he was my very best friend for many years. We shared January birthdays and had s lot of fun during that time. His mom was like another mother to me. Although we had not seen each other in several years, I will miss him. My prayers are with his family.

I have seen Dr. Hager for over 30 years. Every year we would talk about our anniversary and laugh because we were the longest "relationship" we both had had ... He was kind, gentle and as those who have stated before me was quite the joker - which put you at ease. Having worked at the Women's Clinic for awhile in the early 1980's, I got to know him not just as a doctor, but as a friend. I know that all who used him as their doctor is suffering - I can not imagine what his family is going through that is why I am sending my sympathy, prayers and love to them all. God Bless You !!
