Your larger than life smile and hugs will be missed. My favorite Mark story is when I brought him to the LL Wrestling Championships a few years ago. He watched a match with a coworker's son and was very into it. The highlight for Mark was when he meet the wrestler after the match. He was so happy to meet the wrestler (Alex) and gave him his larger than life hug. He was so happy to meet Alex. He would not stop smiling the entire ride home back to the Peck Lane.

Markie, I can't even believe that you're gone. Since the day you walked into Peck Lane, you've kept me on my toes, made me laugh, and melted my heart with that smile of yours. I will miss your hugs, your laugh and that mischievous twinkle in your eyes when you were up to something. Even when you threatened to fire me or cut my hair off, you brought such joy to my life. I will keep close the memories of all the fun we had over the years going to concerts and sporting events. Give "Cay-May" a hug, and watch over "Big Boy" and the rest of us. We all love you, and miss you like crazy already.
