  1. To all of Mark’s family:
    I worked with Mark for a long time. I will miss all the stories he liked to tell, especially when he told of the “pranks” he liked to pull on his sisters! I used to laugh at the way he would always start his stories with “check this out”. He loved to talk about movies he liked and was quick to hit me with a pop quiz of some kind out of nowhere. Mark was the best at what he did at Western Forge and they will never find anyone to fill his shoes. He was a good and loyal friend. I had never known anyone quite like him, he truely was one of a kind. He will be missed. I know I will think of Mark every time I see a banana pie!

    To Mrs. McDonald:
    Mark loved and cherished you with all of his heart. He always spoke very highly of you and he knew how proud you were of him.

  2. Dave,
    As I sit here thinking of you and your family, I wish you hope in the midst of sorrow, comfort in the midst of pain, and that you find strength in family, friends and memories. May God Bless your family.
    Love Karen

    Pete fondly remembers Mark and their childhood. I was privileged to meet Mark when we moved back to Pueblo. Mark and Pete sat on the front porch and caught up on lost years, while I listened to their childhood stories. We all laughed so hard that night. It was a wonderful evening. We will cherish those memories. He will be missed so much more than words can express.

    Heaven has been given a great gift in Mark, and until we all meet again…. Take Care Mark & God Bless.

    With much Love,
    Pete and Lisa Prigmore
