Kathy, sorry to hear of Mark's passing. I am even sorrier that I could not be there today for the funeral. Mark and you are good friends and he will surely be missed by both Rita and myself. Our Fantasy drafts will never be the same, probably an hour shorter without Mark, but never the same. I have fond memories of the softball days. Mark's wit surely came out one day after practice while we were drinking at the bar the airport. Mark went to get cigarettes out of my brothers pickup and comes back with the cigarettes and says nice extended cab. Of course he did not have an extended cab and had all of us walking to the parking lot to see what truck he went into. But my favorite Markism was the quote if I remember it correctly "the one thing you could always say is there is nothing worse than country music. Then rap music came along." Rock and Roll forever Mark!!

Kathy, sorry to hear of Mark's passing. I am even sorrier I cannot be there today for the funeral. He surely will be missed by Rita and I. The Fantasy Drafts will never be the same without him - and not just because they will take an hour less time. I always smile when I remember the softball days. The best example of Mark's humor was the time we were drinking at the airport after practice and Mark went to get cigarettes out of my brothers truck. He comes back with the cigarettes and says nice extend cab you have. We all got up to see what he was talking about because of course he did not have an extended cab.

But my favorite Markism forever will be "the one thing you could say is there is nothing worse than county music, then rap music came along." Rock and Roll forever Mark!!!!

Kathy and family, I am so sorry to hear of Marks passing. I enjoyed so many great times with you both during our many years of baseball with Rich and Dan. Huge Healing Hugs during this difficult time.
