Not sure what to say?

I too, was a friend of Mark's on Successful Farming's "Ag-Forum". I also chatted with him via e-mail from time to time. He was wise, kind and thoughtful in all things. I enjoyed our "chats" about his working at the Chicago-Northwestern Locomotive Shop in Oelwein while going to school. He was a one in a million guy and I will miss his presence now, and look forward to meeting him in the Next Life. God Bless. Craig Milligan, Indianola, Iowa.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss of Mark....I'm quite certain he...

I only knew you over the 'net, but I gleaned both knowledge for myself, and respect for him, through our correspondence. He will be missed.

Dear Bocks..I'm a cyber freind of Mark's from Minnesota. We met some time ago on the Ag Forum at the Succesful Farming site. Hadn't heard from him in a while, was aware of his illness (and could sense his bravery and strong faith and positive attitude) and ultimately found this sad news by doing a search. Everything he ever expressed or questioned on the forum showed him to be the good man that his touching obituary revealed. I even saw a little of our casual relationship in Mark's obit, as...

Marilyn, So sorry for the loss of your brother. Sending prayers and sympathy.
