I first met Mark in 1975 when I started dating his cousin, Jack Eagle. Mark had a huge crush on me which lasted until his recent marriage. We kept in touch over the years as he always said, you've always been nice to me and treated me with respect when others weren't so kind. Mark was a sweet soul who never really felt people truly cared for him. Our friendship was special. He will truly be missed.

You will never be forgotten, you were such a sweet guy, I'll never forget our talks, and of coarse our laughs. I am so very heart broken, I want to say more but I don't know how to put it. R.I.P Mark, love you my friend ❤️
