    Terrible news.

    My prayers go to his family.

    He deserves a 21 driver salute.

    Wow.

    Man, I don't even know what to type here. Mark and I had worked out a couple equipment deals in the last little bit. I suppose I feel a bit of happiness in that.

    RIP, dude. You're a great man.

    Same here, when i realized it had been a while since he posted, i feared the worst.


    I had a lot of fun with Mark down in Tenn and I'm very glad I made the trip down that year. This is Mark while the four of us were standing around cooking up some brats, shooting the shit and talking smart.

    I can't believe this much time has passed since Mar 2. I had no idea. I've never met him or had any personal dealings with him, but I guess it is like we're all kind of buddies on here to a level I didn't really understand until now.

    That's really sad news indeed. I had PM'ed Mark a few times, bought / sold some stuff etc. He was a great guy and I enjoyed reading his updates on here. It's a bit weird when you have never met someone but you feel you know them, wish I had had the chance to meet him. I knew he was ill but I thought he was on the mend.
