I remember when Michelle first told me about Mark. She said "I think I met my soulmate". And after I met Mark and saw them together I believed her. :blush: Thank you for being such a kind, good person. He was a reminder of hope and wanting everyone to be happy. He was loved and it showed at the funeral. Cheers and good bye for now to the am sweet man who stole Michelle's heart and everyone who comes with her.

While our team only had the privilege to work with Mark on a professional level, we all knew he was a warm and generous soul in addition to being a great pipe fitter. He also came to the jobsite with a willingness to work with others and do so with a good sense of humor and smile. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends. He will not be forgotten. With sympathy, The team at Hensel Phelps Construction Co.

It was joy and delight to be able to photograph Mark and Michelle's wedding here in Kona Hawaii in April 2014 Spending a couple of hours with this wonderful couple was complete joy, a friendship was immediately created. Hearing this brutal news of mark's passing simply floored me, it was like loosing a brother. My heart breaks for the entire family. Sending hugs, and prayers of comfort from Hawaii. Only wish we could have been able to share another Kona Brew with you my brother. Aloha from Kona, Hawaii
