Sad, prayers to all.
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

Mark was one of the good ones - very selfless and a great guy to be around.  Had a lot of fun chasing fish and crabs and moose with him.  He will be sorely missed.  RIP

RIP old friend.
Why is it in a community like this when we lose a member it always takes me by surprise. We are a pretty large group, very diverse in so many ways, yet I never seem to grasp that the process of life takes place outside of the forum. Time to say good bye to another member of the family  :'(.
