Not sure what to say?

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Watson family.
Every memory of Mark makes me smile. 25 years later, Gayle and I still talk about her dance with Mark at our wedding.
Mark made me aware, at a very young age, that being different is a great thing and his joy for life was contagious. Mark will be missed but not forgotten.

I will never forget the day Betty and Mark showed up at our door, on 124 St, in the spring of 1959. Betty's smile made us forever friends. Our family were blest to have grown up with Mark and the Watson family from that time on. He taught each of us many things but for me it was his love and acceptance of every person that came his way. I never met Mark at home or in public that I wasn't met with his glorius smile and a kiss (or two) and a hug. Denzle and I were privileged to spend much time...

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn Mark's death. Today, I have only positive,caring,fun,and happy memories of time spent with Mark and each of the Watson family over the past 50 years. Memories of time spent at Mameo Beach, around the house, or in the park playing.

May your love of one another be a source of comfort and strength. While we know Mark could be an "imp" teasing, I always knew I was loved and respected. I cherish the memory and time spent with...

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Thinking of the whole Watson family!

When I think of Mark a smile comes across my face! Those wonderful kisses and great big bear hugs will be missed! Hugs and much love to all of the Watson family who I consider my extended ma-me-o family! Wish I could be there in person to share your grief. How lucky he was to be born into your family!

My thoughts and prayers are with you Betty and all the Watson family. I was blessed to come to know Mark when he would be at the Laporte's and I recall with joy Mark being my dance partner at Bob McKeon and Mary's wedding reception and at my niece Liz and nephew Steve's reception too. Mark was a gentleman, who brought a joyful presence to all. I feel grateful to have known him.

Dear Watson Family
I was saddened to hear that Mark had died. I have so many memories of time spent together growing up together, church at St. Andrews and time spent at Mameo Beach.
I will never forget Mark as he was first in line to dance with me at my wedding reception 20 years ago and so our dance together ends my wedding video.
As long as your grief lasts my thoughts are with you.....
Mark had so much to teach us all about enjoying the little things.....

We have fond memories of Mark at Winnifred Stewart Day Services. He was a pleasant gentleman and was very friendly, greeting people at the door. We will miss his smile and jokes. My deepest condolences to the family.
