Mark touched my family in so many ways. He was a mentor, friend and co conspirator for summer camps with my daughter. He was a fellow blacksmith and snappy period dresser with my son. My wife made him blueberry pie and did guest cameos at summer camps. Mark and I shared a love of old things - tools, furniture, sayings, and grey hair. I've never met a man so mighty and so tender as Mark. He was a prince of a man. I will hear his big laughter in my mind and feel his love in my heart the rest of my days. See you again soon my friend.
