That's exactly what made him special. I can't think of a better way to remember a person than to think they were good and kind.

I cannot imaging a more fitting memorial for Okie. This says it all. We will miss you.

This.

He was a good man with a great heart, and we are all lessened with his passing.

How sad. Had private convos with him a couple times. He seemed like a genuinely good person.

It was often clear that life had not been and often was not easy for him, and sometimes he might suggest that was not a perfect person... But Mark sure worked hard to make sure that his presence here was always pleasant and uplifting. Many of us benefited from that.

I was fortunate to have met him. Between my lurking and registered history, I've been here for over a decade, and I've known many regulars who come and go, but okie was a constant presence. I noticed his absence, and I'm sad to know that he has moved on permanently

I may buy something camo tomorrow.

In the short time that I knew him on this forum, I could tell he was a great person. So sad that he is gone now. What is uplifting to me though, was the outpouring of concern for okie when he went missing for a few days. Really showed me that there a lot of other good people out there as well. I'm still a little sad about the bad news and how fast it all happned. Anyways thanks for the laughs and Rest In Peace Mark...

When ohub showed me the last comment from Kevin in the latest brief I knew exactly who it was just by that. What a sad day. I didn't know him as well as others but I certainly knew him and talked to him somewhat regularly on gt. He was such a wonderful person who never had a bad word to say about anyone. God called home an angel today. I don't pray often but I certainly did after reading this. The world is a better place because of okie and people like him. May we all strive daily to be more like him. RIP friend. You will be missed.

At least perhaps Okie, Linda (Maw) and CJ are throwing a few back hopefully, and laughing at us by comparison 'caz THEY will forever be free of hangovers and booze-pudgie-pounds on the hips).

DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Lone_Wolfe.

I just went and re read my last PM with him from the other day....and I can't quit crying.

The PM from him ends with "Thanks, My Friend"

Damn-it
