Condolence: Dear Mark,

You left us far too early and I am lacking the words to express my feelings.

It was a great pleasure working with you over the years and you will always be fondly remembered.

Alles Gute auf der anderen Seite,

Condolence: Mark and I worked together at Sedgwick Payne and Guy Carpenter in New York. We had some great times together and I always found him to be very kind. Mark was a real gentle man. I will miss his smile, his great sense of humor and his friendship. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mark's family, colleagues and friends. God bless you Mark and may you rest in peace! "Q"

Condolence: Such sad news. Even though Mark and I did not have any direct dealings with each other in the office, he would always take time during his many visits to stop for a chat, and I don't think I can ever recall him being without a smile on his face. Such a warm character and a great loss to all that knew and loved him. My sincere condolences to all his family and friends. RIP Mark.
