An encouraging and great hockey dad of a wonderful family that I am proud I got to know throughout my hockey career.
To this day I pay tribute to the phrase, "Mi casa es su casa", as Mark said this to me while he lead me into their home for the first time to spend the night after Craig and I had a skate.
He was always very generous with the compliments he handed out to his son and I with the style of play we had together. One time, I recall Mark asking and wondering whether or not Craig and I would first communicate prior to me dropping a random pass behind my back only for him to be in the right place at the right time to receive it, as this was regularly performed with such precision between us. :]
So many great memories that will never be forgotten!
Let us not forget that God has a plan for us all and our true Home is with Him, Above!!
My prayers are with you Skidmore's - God Bless you all.
