“Mark lived in our family for several years. He was sometimes a bit of a rascal (normal for the age) but he was caring and supportive,always did his share and helped others. We were proud to have shared in his upbringing. ” - Don Beck

“Mark was the greates joy in our lives. We felt privileged to be able to adopt him when he was just a baby. He was always very curious about everything and gave his teachers a hard time with questions. When he was tested, we learned that he was a genius and it helped us understand him better. His greatest love was seniors, he loved their stories. We loved him so much and I am so sorry that Jim talked us into having him live with someone else. I love you Mark and will always remember you as my son. ” - Neva Sly

“This was one of the players on the 1977 Opportunity High School Cobra baseball team. ” - Anonymous
