Carol & Family: The news of Mark's death both saddened and shocked me. We were friends for over 60 years, beginning with classes at St. Cecelia's in 1948, and lasting, though with gaps, till now. In fact, with exception of the '06 St. Leo reunion, we had not seen each other since Prep school graduation (1957 for me). Yet, it always amazes me how little friends
change over the years. Anyone who knew Mark could have easily predicted his success. His deep sense of spirituality was not a known quality in younger years, but certainly no surprise to see it. I will always consider knowing Mark a privilege. may he rest in peace.
