Among so many remarkable friends I made at Cornell and Sigma Pi, Mark was a truly extraordinary person. His intellect, sensitively, kindness and humanity set an example we all could hope to emulate. I am heartbroken for his family, patients, colleagues and friends. We have all lost a very special person in our lives.
