Looking back on the time I spent with Mark fills my heart with pure joy. He was an impeccable person, the type of individual you are lucky to come across in your lifetime. His joyous laugh, contagious smile, and warm embrace is something I will never forget. Mark taught me far more than how to be a confident, engaging speaker; he taught me how to be a better person. I am so thankful for the time that I spent with Mark, and for his constant positivity. Words cannot express my sorrow. The world needs more people like Mark, to lose him so early is a tragedy. My heart goes out to his family, but I hope they know how lucky they were to have him for the time that they did. Looking back to February of this year, I realize that I spent time with Mark on what will be his last birthday. And although that is an eerie feeling, it also is an immense honor. Thank you Mark, for not only being my angel in the audience; but also, for simply being an angel. With immense love and gratitude, Audra Lundy
