    I am saddened for your loss with the passing of Mark. He was a wonderful human and an inspiration to myself and many others. I had the honor of being taught by Mark from 1977 to 1980 at MHS. I was in two of his Biology classes and was an intern as well. He taught me so much and I am grateful for knowing him. We spent much time fishing and sailing together and went a few times to Traverse City as well.
    I will always carry the lessons he taught with me and I will never forget his wit and wisdom. The world is a lesser place without him. May his Saber sail on forever!
