I'm definitely in the "denial" stage of grief. Anyone who knew him even fleetingly must have the same sense as his close friends and family - that Mark's light was so bright, it seems impossible that it could ever be dimmed or diminished. I see him as the Spirit of Christmas Past - larger than life and a beacon of good cheer to all ages; a veritable force of nature. Condolences to the Lewis family and everyone sharing that grief.
