Debbie, words cannot express how I feel about the passing of Mark. Even though I knew Mark from high school he and I became close friends through TAV. I always enjoyed when he and I had classes together as there was never a dull moment with him around, it's a wonder we even passed the Customer Service class. His smile, his love for life, love for music and his sense of humor will be things I will always remember about him. His love for you shined in his eyes when he looked at you or talked about you, you truly were his angel. Sorry I cannot be there to give you a hug but I am sending it to you and remember no matter how hard times seem you will get through them with help from God, family and friends but also I don't think Mark wants any of us to grieve or be sad but to continue to live life to the fullest and never give up. Always remember the good times and the fact that we got to share them with Mark as we are all so blessed to have had Mark in our lives. Love Bev

There are truly no words to let you know just how sorry I was to hear of Mark's passing. I'm sure that I don't need to tell you what a special and loving person he was. Being a new Treasurer (needing help), Mark always took the time to answer my questions with patience, encouragement and understanding. I'll truly miss his guidance and friendship. May God fill the coming days with wonderful memories and comfort for your grieving hearts.

Debbie and Family, I just wanted you to know how deeply sorry I am for you loss. Mark was truly a "prince of a fellow" and it was my pleasure to work with him on many Treasurer projects, and he always made every activity fun, which is sometimes hard when it is work. I will deeply miss him and the personal and professional relationship that we have shared. He was indeed a pleasure to know and work with, and always strived to provide the best possible service to the citizens of Winchester, as the elected Treasurer.
