Mark was an amazing guy. As a former co-worker of Mark's, I can honestly say I learned so much from him way of accomplishing what every person in his field wants to accomplish and that is helping others to help themselves along the way. I will never forget these words he spoke to me about getting a degree. "I don't know where my piece of paper that said I graduated from Houghton is but it is probably on the floor wrinkled up somewhere." He told me he didn't keep it in a frame hanging on the wall because the knowledge was more important and taking interest in people was far more important. His impressions he left when dealing with a crisis was one that made you know that it was for more than the money. He truly cared for those he assisted and his co-laborers. I was honored to work with Mark and my condolences go out to each of you. I grieve with you for such a loss. You are in my prayers-
