"Mark was a dear friend and colleague. We both started our Podiatry practices at the same time, occasionally shared patients and would run into each other at Virtua hospital from time to time. He always had a smile and would tell me about his latest travels! He will be sorely missed by many. Rest well my friend. Warren Mangel"

"I have been a patient of Mark?s since the early 90?s and have had so many talks with him over the years. Sometimes we practiced our German while he gave me heat treatments, or he would tell me of his latest travels. Back when Millionaire was on, I joked with him that he would be my choice for Phone a Friend if I was ever on, since he knew so much about everything?science, travel, languages and culture. This year he operated on my husband?s foot and showed such care and concern. He treated my daughter?s feet for a minimal fee when she had no insurance. Mark became a dear friend over the years and I will miss him greatly. My condolences to Gary and family, and to Mark?s brothers. He spoke of you all with such love. Prayers for you all. Nancy and Carl McDaniel "

"Gary, there are no words that can express the loss we feel for Mark, but I will share this memory?I met Mark on your wedding day and all I can remember is his great spirit for dancing ?? up a storm. He was the cutest and he did not sit down. I even videotaped him dancing with his granddaughters. It was so much fun to watch. He had so much energy and was so happy to be with his family and friends on your special day. It was one of the most fun weddings I had been invited to with a Hawaiian theme. I always enjoyed his many posts on FB of all the travel places He and you had visited and how much you loved your restaurants. My deepest condolences on the sudden loss of your best friend and partner in life. I have known Mark through your eyes all of these years and I will miss him. It is during this difficult time that God will carry you through this grieving time. May he Rest In Peace and party in Heaven too! Mark was a cool cat! ?"

"We have known Mark for 33 years, ever since he came into our brother, Gary?s life. He was a joy to be around, always sharing his many adventures and loving his family immensely. Never saw him without a broad smile on his face. Gary and Mark?s wedding was one of the most joyous occasions ever. They waited so long and were so very happy. We mourn his sudden departure, and will never forget him or his many kindnesses over the years. Rest in the hands of God, dear Mark. "
