Not sure what to say?

So very sorry for your loss. Mark was always like a brother to me when Brenda and I were young. He will be missed by many. Prayers for you all. Love you all. Lori Bromley Maritt

I truly enjoyed working with Mark at Charter. I miss joking around with him and giving others around us a good laugh. Mark was a great person. I enjoyed talking with him. My thoughts and prayers are with Mark and his family.

I met Mark when we worked together in the Accounting Department at Charter Communications. He and I, along with another co-worker and friend, Randy Remming, became somewhat of a modern day version of the Three Musketeers. We lost Randy three years ago, and now, after a valiant fight, Mark has gone to join him in their eternal resting place. I can see them already, discussing which concert venue they'll check out next. So long my friend, it won't be the same without you!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family

I and the folks at Verizon who interfaced with Mark in person and remotely are saddened by his loss. Mark is a beautiful soul who was always willing to listen and help. His diligence and effort, even through the challenges of dialysis and doctor appointments was formidable. I and the team will miss him. Sympathies and prayers to the family he always spoke about and shared with us.

I am very sorry to the family for your loss.

I have worked with Mark for a bit over 3 years. He was always so nice and had a great sense of humor. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family.

I met Mark when I started as a contractor at Charter. I didn't know him long, but he had a fun personality and I always liked sitting near him when our teams went out for group lunches together. I will truly miss him and my thoughts are with the family.

I have many wonderful memories of Mark from his Coffeyville days, mostly on the baseball and softball fields. He was always a good guy and I know also a good son, brother, husband, dad and grandpa. Our sincere condolences to Lori and all the Barlow family.
