I only got to spend two weeks getting to know Mark personally while he was training me to take his position at the Spokesman-Review. He was an obvious kind hearted person and hard working, and I know he will be missed terribly by his family and friends. In the four years since I started working in this position it has become apparent that he was very much respected and loved by his co-workers and friends. Bless you Mark and your family.
