Condolences! My body is grieving with eternal shock and helplessness at the passing of giant of a man in dedication, integrity and heart who went a a million miles beyond professionalism to serve. what a loss to his family, society and to me who claimed him and Africanized him? I found out today and my worldview is indelibly dented. For his children and wife, please stay strong knowing that our creator is ultimately the refuge as well as Mark's memories and love as well as genes which will dwell in thee for ever! I am truly sorry for your loss. November 1, 2018

Sue, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of sorrow. The respect, love, compassion and poise you brought forth during this long journey has been beyond remarkable. I have the utmost admiration for your strength and faith. You raised two beautiful, graceful, loving children during this time when many would have said "why us". I am grateful to have been a servant in the care of Mark and a friend to you. While you now take this time to grieve I hope you do so knowing Mark, "your Mark" is looking down on all of you and guiding you to peace. Lola
