Not sure what to say?

Joan and Tony, I am so saddened to read of Mark’s passing. It was not all that long ago that he would come for a ride in the back of “Dabe’s car” (a red Chrysler LeBaron convertible) when coming to visit Mandy. My most heartfelt condolences to your entire family.

Just started making monthly donation to Covenant House in Mark's honor. This is an incredible cause and Mark was an incredible person and friend. He will be missed and remembered, and still helping others.

Dear Joan and Tony,
I was truly sad to hear of the death of your youngest child, Mark, due to a drug overdose!
Unfortunately, we hear of this situation far too often in our world today! It is almost impossible, as a parent, to think of burying your child since it goes against the natural cycle of life. I've seen this occur several times with close friends, one of which was a situation exactly like yours.
My heart goes out to you and your family in this time of sorrow...

So very sorry for your loss. Bob and Nancy Thomas

Mark was an amazing person. It has been hard to log into Facebook lately because of hundreds of people sharing their stories of how Mark touched their lives. An amazing, kind, talented individual.

Mark doing what he loved... playing music.

Rest easy Mark. You will be missed by many.

Mark was one of the kindest people i've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He made friends and touched lives all over the country. He will especially be missed by his hundreds of friends in the philly area alone. Going to music shows just will NEVER be the same without Mark there. I hope Mark's family knows how special he was and how much he was loved unconditionally by his GD and philly music community family. We are blessed to have had him in our lives, and grateful for all the fond lasting...

Tony, my deepest condolences to you & your family. Stephen Castagliuolo
