My Condolences and prayers go out to you Diane & Eric. I met Mark while I was working at ACW in 2006. Since day one we became good friends and had a good relationship. He was a good mentor to me cause we talked about real-life situations. He also instilled the value of hard work ethics. He will be truly missed and I valued our relationship. Mark was a dear friend and will truly be missed. Once again my condolences go out to the McKenzie family.
