Sincere condolences to Wilfred and Bertha on their loss…Mark was a very courageous and happy guy considering he had to contend with much more than any one person should ever have to in one’s lifetime. He will surely be missed by all who knew him… I’ll never forget the picture he took titled…"UP ON THE ROOF"…I still laugh everytime I think about it…

Dear Family and Friends:
I wish to extend sincere sympathy on Mark’s passing. I was the priest called to the hospital and celebrated the anointing with him and those who were present as he was seriously ill at that time. I visited him since then after the family had returned to Cheticamp. Be assured of my condolences, very best wishes and sincere prayers for Mark and for you all.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Angus MacLeod
