"I didn't know
you played bass guitar." These were Mark's words to me one Sunday. And the truth is I didn't..."Do you?"
I asked. He said, "A little." well I found out he played more than a little. And with this began a wonderful relationship.
I give thanks for the opportunity to have been his former pastor and friend. May the family be blessed and comforted.
Sorry to hear about. Just wanted to share condolences. I met Mark as a freshman at Clarion
in '79. Absolutely wonderful person. True friend, always happy times with Mark around. He helped adjust and helped me
grow as person. While I didn't stay in touch, he remained in my memories.
We will always remember his gift of music and friendship.
We are all blessed to be able to have shared his time with us.
