Victoria and Sons, I am sorry to hear of the loss of Mark, husband and Dad. I do not know if you recall me, I was married to Mark's cousin, Barbara E. Bavender (5/16/1944 - 7/3/2006) for 42 years. Before that Mark and I went to school together in Cambridge City, Mark was a year a head of me in school. Barb and I visited with you at Madge and Wendell's home a few times.

Mike, I was sorry to hear of your brother's passing.

I've known Mark since we were 4 yrs old and his parents and brother. He was my good friend throughout the years and I am shocked and saddened to learn of his death. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Of so many memorable characters in my life he is at the top of the list. To his children and to brother Mike please accept my heartfelt condolences.

I went to school with Mark in 1960 and 1961. We graduated together and remained friends after graduation. I didn't get to see Mark very often because we lived in different states but he was always fondly remembered. We had some great times and Mark was always sweet and kind. I will miss visiting with him at our reunions and I know the whole class will feel the void.
