Deanna & Family,

I’m so sorry to hear about Mark.  I prayed for him as I cut his hair, I could tell he was very sick.  He was so looking forward to that grandbaby.  We just got back from NC.  Connie told me Monday at the barbershop.  I would have been to the funeral, had I been home.  I hope u will get this condolence.  If there’s anything I can do, let me know.  Seems like yesterday we were all young, happy, & just starting out.  I’ll be praying for you & your family.

Sarah,

Deanna,
It warms my heart to know that your childhood/classmate friends, like myself, are reaching out to you during this sad time. I am so glad I got to see him less than a year ago when visiting Watertown with Judy. Hold onto all the love around you to keep strong. Will be thinking about you, especially these few days and the weeks ahead when family are gradually going back to their busy lives. Don’t ever feel alone and just know you can reach out to me anytime.

Love, Sue
Long time friend from S.Hamilton/Academy Street days

My deepest sympathy for all the family. The days will pass but the memories will live forever. It is super cool that you placed that 300 in this writing. I will never forget the day we got the call and needed a sub for the night.One of our bowlers was in the military and got called to New York city for that crazy devastating day in history. He bowled that 300 and we were like"now there is a great reminder of that day because your ring will always have that date. Much love my friend and rest easy.

So sorry for your loss. Mark was a hard worker,a little wild sometimes and he did have a great sense of humor. I’m glad I had the opportunity to know him and work along side him. He left too soon but the memories will always be with us, until we are united again.
