Oh dear Mark...We grew up together, played and laughed and sometimes cried together. We caught the first bus on the scariest first day of high school together. We stuck together, 'cuz we were from the "Heights," same street even. We grew apart as life often demands, but I was so happy to see you and catch up last year at "The Warm-Up" fundraiser for Helping Hands. It was great to have one more drink with you, say one more - and final - goodbye.  We found eachother again, and discovered even though we lived worlds apart for so many years, we still shared so much in common - we suffered together, though apart, through all those years.  I am sad for all those who will miss you dearly, but am so very happy for you my dear friend because I know..... the only pain in dying is left to the living... until we meet again....
