I just learned of Marks death today, and it has broken my heart. He was one of my friends and co workers, he was truly an unforgettable person, he was a very dear friend to me, always kind. The time we spent together at Chaney’s I will truly never forget, Heaven truly gained an Angel when he arrived. I love you like a brother, Mark, Rest In Peace my friend, I’ll never forget you.
