Please accept my sympathy to all of Mark's family. As a classmate of Mark's, I always thought very highly of Mark, as he was a great person. I wish that I could attend the Celebration of Life in New Hampton, but unfortunately I have another commitment. Cherish the memories!! Joe Thraenert

Mark. What a joy to have known you and exchange jibes each time. You always had time to listen or loan or do for me. I miss you already and will do my best to be there for Sandra.
