I wont forget the weekend cruises up to king mountain with Mark, Chuck and Ron (back when you could fill a motorcycle up for 5 bucks, remember the days?)

And I remember all the time on the ice with Mark and you guys. My family likes to watch the video "Miracle". I remember watching that last game with most of the team over at my folks house... I think of Mark and a lot of you when I see that video with my kids. "Olympians" of a different sort... It was good to skate with you guys.

Mark was a good friend of mine, especially throughout elementary school. I remember the daily trips to Marks house after school, helping him with his daily chores and then finding some way to get in trouble, like when I help him shovel snow and was struck between the eyes with his shovel. He was so scared and concerned for me.
I remember on the way to school we would pick up Roxanne Hinkle and watch her prepare her lunch before we left. I don't think I have ever seen someone use that much mustard in my life. I have to many stories about Mark to convey on this page but the one thing that I remember most about Mark was his love of adventure and his genuine friendship that he showed to me and everyone he came in contact with. I missed him when he passed and miss him now!

Gosh Mark here i am writing you again, feeling your absence as we head into another new year,  another class reunion gone and friends that gathered are home again, leading there lives , and i always come back to thoughts of you,  our antics as children, the wasp nest we fell into, that was the day we found i was allergic to bees, and wade my sister cathy and you  chasing me because i stole the one bike we used and was heading to eagle river elementary to play on the monkey bars, i remember when i had  trouble at home, which you knew was always , i remeber how you held my hand and would walk me the long way home so i was safe,   Darkness was not my friend , and only you knew that .  I miss you so much , and i am trying to be in gods grace so i can see you again, i want you to meet my children and mostly i want to see your face , that sweet face...i still am afraid of the dark even though i became that soldier you were so proud of, you died while i was in germany and i couldn't make it home to be with your family, that was so hard , one of the hardest things i had to do...

But My best friend , i am better for having had you in my life..i was blessed to have been raised around such fine people, from the time i was 4 years old, we were a team and even as we grew into the teen years and had other friends and our lives were not as close, you still called and we still talked for hours , we were family, you and i     i miss you
