You welcomed me into your family in a way that I had not experienced before. Your unexpected warmth and acceptance affected me deeply and profoundly. I have tried to keep your example of how to BE as a guiding principle and a goal to strive for. You are and always will be my family and my friends. I miss you all very much and know the world will be a poorer place without Mark's smiling face in it.
