The song, "You're gonna make me lonesome when you go", written by Bob Dylan but sung so beautifully by Madeleine Peyroux, had special significance to us during our courtship. It is even more meaningful now that he is gone:
I'll look for you in old Honolul-a
San Francisco, Ashtabula
You're gonna have to leave me now, I know
But I'll see you in the sky above
In the tall grass, in the ones I love
You're gonna make me lonesome when you go.

Never met you, but I bet you were a great person.

In the few days of my 2018 visit with Candace in Ft Myers, I was very fortunate to meet Mark. At the time, he was busy initiating his political campaign. Even so, in that short time, I saw several instances where Mark volunteered help to others on the basis of his legal background. I was very moved. Candace’s tribute captures his generous spirit. I feel the loss of a truly good and kind person.

I spent just one evening with Mark, maybe four hours total, when he and Candace went way out of their way to come see a film I had produced. I saw a man with deep convictions and a brightness and shine in his eyes that said he had the passion and the energy to change our world. I wish he could have stayed longer to do so. But I know in their short time together he certainly changed Candace's world, and his legacy will surely live on in her life and the lives of his children.

Though I did not know Mark you, Candance, beautifully presented the summation of an incredible man. I am sorry I did not meet him and get to know this man of righteous passions and love. He made a difference in this world that so needed a champion of worthy causes and corrections. You are a lucky woman to have had him in your life and I offer my deepest sympathies for your loss.

I am so glad I got to meet Mark at the reunion and spend a little time with him at our lunch and quick trip to the National Gallery of Art. What a blessing he was to all who met him. He made you feel like he had known you for years and he had a wonderful smile and a glint in his eyes that could light up a room. I am so sorry this happened Candace to you and his family. You have a wonderful group of family and friends who will support you in every way. Blessings on you all.

In the brief time that we knew Mark, we appreciated his serious mission for justice, his willingness to jump in and help others, and his friendly smile. I wish now that we'd had more conversations at the pool with Mark. Our deep sympathies to Candace and the family.
