"...with that million dollar grin" Memories of Mark by Dawn (Mark's Cousin)

My memories of Mark go all the way back to when he was born. Being that I am his cousin, we had numerous visits and babysitting stories to share as we both became adults. Mark was a wonderful inspiration to all lives that he touched. I had the privilege of playing golf with he and John last September right after Labor Day at Stone Orchard. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I saw both he and John hit the ball!! It took off like a rocket, and of course always landed in just the right place. I remember both Mark and John both saying to me, just get up there "Dawnie", and hit it, you can do it!! All of us that day had a great round, and enjoyable late summer sunny day, with lots of laughing, and fellowship. I had no idea, that that day would be the only time that I would have the privledge to witness such athletic talent with a most difficult and challenging sport. The most lovable memory I will always have is Mark's smile. He always could light up a room with that million dollar grin. I was so lucky to have Mark as my cousin, and tohave him in my life if only for a brief little while. He has etched a warm spot in my heart,and I will never forget you.

Rest well my dear friend, and know thatwe all miss you tremendously.


Your cousin in Colorado Dawn
