Mark and I went to school together from kindergarten to high school graduation -- Adams Elementary, Williams Junior High, and Davenport West High. He was smart and kind and had a great sense of humor. A terrific full-page picture of Mark in our yearbook -- taken by Art Kenyon - shows him hard at work on a typewriter, maybe in Pub, where we got to know each other even better. He filled the facing page with some great memories, and then signed off in a way that has always warmed my heart: "It's really been great knowing you all my life. Good luck forever." 

I wish I had realized that "forever" didn't have to last just thirteen years. We lost touch, and now I can only hope the rest of his life was good. He deserved the best.

Pam, that was very nice. Thank you. I remember Mark not only from West but from church. We were in the same Sunday School and youth group. What a nice guy. I'm sad he left us too soon.
