Seeing the younger picture of him reminds me of his silly smile. I smile as I think of him. He will be missed.

Rest in peace Mark
Just heard you were retiring in October.
Miss you at work already.

I met Mark at work he seemed annoyed that I was invading his space but once we started to talk he became a completely different person. I admired his commitment and his dedication even though he was at that stage of his life to retire, the paperwork was too much for him to review, he tried offering me a job to review the forms for him the laugh we shared was hilarious. I did offer my services free of charge if he needed help. Every time I saw Mark I would wave to him and say "Hello Mark!" and he would nod, wave, and smile back at me. For the short time we have known each other I am truly going to miss his presence.
