    I've only worked at Seborg Terrace for a year, but Mark has completely touched my heart forever. He was kind, extremely friendly, and hilarious. He always took the time to wave and shake hands to everyone he saw. He was super goofy and called everyone a monkey. I will keep praying for his family, friends, friends at Seborg Terrace, and his staff at Seborg Terrace to cope with this difficult situation. Rest easy buddy!

    Mark has always brought joy to my life! He was a dear friend. I have known him these past 8+ years, and he always was ready with a handshake, a joke, a pat on the back, or a smile. He was a happy person and a joy to be around. He will be truly missed, and was loved by all of those who knew him at Seborg Terrace. Thank you for being you, you will be missed dearly.
