Mark and I had been friends for almost 20 yrs. He helped me so many times through some really emotional, personal stuff and we loved each other for a time. The news of his passing is heart breaking. He was such a bright light in many lives always available with kind words, big smiles and the personality of an angel. I pray for all of us mourning this loss whether you knew him personally or just as an online friend (he had many of those). For those that loved him, I pray for strength, understanding, grace and peace during this difficult time. May all of our hearts remember what a tremendous man he was and the always positive influence he had on us. He will be greatly missed by many. Hugs and love to all.
