  1. With deepest sympathy, please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during this mournful time. Hoping the memories of wonderful times together will give you strength to persevere in your loss.

  2. Had the pleasure of sitting near Mark at Highmark and occasionally joining him for lunch. Loved just sitting and talking. So sorry to hear. You are in our prayers!

  3. Im so sorry for the families loss of Mark. I worked with him in Revenue and he was a great guy that was always so helpful.

  4. It is with great sadness and shock that I send my deepest condolences to Tammi and all Mark’s family and Friends. He was my teacher and mentor when I returned to Revenue in BIS to learn the work needed by the Dept. I was delighted for him, but really missed his guidance when he took a different job. He was such a great guy. I missed him. My love Tammi.

  5. Worked with Mark in Revenue for many years. Always had a smile on his face. Shared many a laugh. Hard to believe he is gone. Prayers and hugs for Tammy.

  6. Mark was a great friend from work and a very good programmer. His novel, “How Teddy Roosevelt Killed the Last Mighty T-Rex”. Is one ofy my favorites. I could talk to him about unusual things, like the Fortean Times. He liked to pester Tammy with a rubber? duck on his desk. I was shocked to see he has passed. Tammy, I can imagine what you are going through since I lost my husband 2 years ago. Stay strong!

  7. Tammy, sorry to hear of Mark’s sudden passing. Prayers for comfort and love from family and friends.
