So sorry for your loss. Mark was an awesome person. He was so knowledgeable and always reading during his breaks. He was so nice.
Mark was one of the kindest souls I knew. I never heard anything bad come from his lips, and even when a machine was giving him fits, he still had a smile for anyone who needed it. If you saw a lanky form coming toward you down an aisle, you knew he would have a smile and a “hey” for you.
Mark, til I see you again, healthy and happy in a place that deserves your smile, I and many others will miss you tremendously…
