You were such an important part of my life. To me you were the kindest, bravest, toughest, most giving, unselfish, smartest, most loving man I have ever known. You were everything that I thought a dad should be. You gave me many memories to look back on and I am so proud that you were my step-dad. I will never, ever forget you. Not a day will go by that I do not think of you. Until I see you again.

My friend, that I haven't seen in 44 years. I am blessed to remember those times of our youth with you, Mark. Those times included so many memories of of you and I doing things for the first time, from music, both Tamburitzans and Rock-n-Roll (CCR) to bathtub Canadian ale, girls, and learning to swear in other languages. I wish I knew you were in Pa. All love from the Shaban Families in Texas and Pa. You will never be forgotten.
