Mark was the kindest most fun and beloved person in my life. After twenty seven years it was not nearly enough,he was agreat cook, beautiful singer and loved drumming, when anything went wrong he was there to take care of it the friends and his entire family all will have an empty place in there heart and until someday I will be with him again the pain is all I have left. Thanks to his family and all the friends that brought joy in our lives, I love you my mark someday we will be together again.
