This is the most devastating news I've ever heard in a long time. I was incredibly lucky this term to have met a man who was more full of love and life than anyone else I'd ever met. In his presentations class, he taught me how to be confident in myself, among many other things I didn't even know could be taught. The impact he made on everyone who knew him can't be put into words. Several students, including me, teared up on our last day of class. When it was over, everyone lined up to personally thank him and give him a hug. But no one wanted or expected that to be our last goodbye. Mark Lewis, thank you so much for everything. Your presence truly made the world a better place. Rest in peace. Love, Andrea
