What a tragedy.
I was closer in age to Mark than many. He had kids at a later age than I, so I had gone through the sports scene already.
My favorite memories of Mark will be talking about kids, lacrosse - my sons had played - and music and dance. His son was also a lacrosse player and his daughter a unique talent. My daughter had majored in drama and song at NYU.
Please tell his kids their Dad couldn't talk enough about them and with enormous pride and love.
I so enjoyed being with him.
