    I worked with Mark fornthe last 18 months at The Landings and he was more than a fellow employee. He was a brother and a friend. He will be missed by all that truly knew him. We will never forget him.
    RIP Brother. Your watch is done, we will take it from here.

    Mark and I were best buds in the 80s. I have good memories of him and I spending a lot of time together…atttending and working at Bible Baptist, going to eat after church, hanging out at each other’s houses, watching movies, riding bikes between the Islands and Savannah (before we had cars), cruising to the beach, River Street and Starcastle Arcade in his Camaro, etc. Sadly, Mark and I did not stay close later in life, but my heart hurts nonetheless. Thoughts and prayers for his surviving family. Til we meet again in heaven.
