  3. I AM SO SAD TO HEAR THAT MARK HAS PASSED AWAY. HE WAS GENUINE, AND A VERY KIND HEARTED PERSON. MARK WORKED WITH ME ON A BOAT HOUSE REPAIR AT BIG LAKE. THE ROOF JOISTS NEEDED TO BE CUT, AND SPLICED. I REMEMBER THE SATURDAY MORNING WE STOPPED BY TO GET MARK. HE WAS RAREING TO GO. HIS DAD, MY UNCLE JOHN, KNOWING THE EXTENT OF THIS PROJECT.

  6. I remember the first time I met Mark at the restaurant and couldn't help but laugh at the big guy holding and playing with Briana. She was about 18 months old. He made her laugh so hard, I wasn't sure she would keep down her dinner! I'm heartbroken for your family's loss. We love you all so much.

  7. I was so heartbroken to hear the sad news about Mark. I will always remember Mark as a loving, kind, caring and compassionate gentle giant. He was a special and important part of my extended family including the OLQH family and St. Louis family. He was also an important friend to Buddy, and Buddy spoke of him often. Buddy reminded me that sleeping over at your house with Mark was his first sleepover and the start of a great friendship.We are thinking of you and praying for you. Please let me know if I can help in any way.Jennifer Diane Corbello Guillory (St. Louis librarian)

  13. We are so sad to hear that Mark is gone. He was such a kind and giving person. I can still see him as a cute and sweet little boy of 6 or 7 running around at Big Lake. I remember him barbecuing chicken and crabs and sausage when Chase and Laura were little bitty and we were all at Big Lake fishing with his Uncle Lee–who for some reason wouldn't let him barbecue on the wharf where there was a little breeze!

  14. We are so saddened by Mark's death. He went to both OLQH and St. Louis with us. He was never without a smile and a warm hug. Rest in peace, sweet man.Much love and continued prayers for all of you. Jeff, Laura, Hannah and Meryl
