I met Mark when he was in Mt. Carmel West Hospital. It’s been awhile so I am not sure of the year, maybe 1972 or 73. He was one year older than me, very cute and very sweet….and the staff thought it was fun to have me, a nurses aide, give him, well, something to clean him out. He went to South High and I was at Westland. I rarely get a chance to look at the Dispatch, but the tonight, August 19, I looked at the paper, and saw the last name Roshon and thought no, it couldn’t be. I’m sorry to see his name here. He was a great young man, and I’ve no doubt he became a fine grown man. I am sorry for your loss and pray for peace and comfort for you all. Respectfully, Robyn Murry-Hoffman.

I knew Mark from junior high and high school. He was a great guy, always had smile on his face and was great to be around. I remember pulling up to a traffic light in my Corvette one afternoon in in 1973 or 74 and looked over at the Trans Am in the other lane and it was Mark. We parked, compared cars and chatted. He will be missed.
