Betty Shreve left a message on July 26, 2012:
I was so sorry to read of Mark's death. Both Mark and Mary Pat were my students in Junior High. I am happy to see that Mark maintained his quick wit and love of reading. Mark was also a very accomplished problem solver and had excellent mental strength. Both qualities not always found in one so young. Mark was well-liked by his peers and was a joy to have in the classroom. Pat, Mary Pat and all of Mark's family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Chelsky saved my mom's (Karen Ziemer) life. My mom always talked about him and how important he was to her. Words cannot express my gratitude for all that he did for her. I hope that you are able to find peace and know that he was loved and appreciate by many.

Dr. Chelsky saved my life. And in the words of my RN Aunt, "he did a beautiful job stitching you up! The scarring will be minimal!". All these years later I wear my scar as a badge of honor to the man who saved me; my gratitude is never ending. Thank you Dr. Chelsky and family. RIP

Mark's too short life leaves fond memories, friendships and an extraordinary family that any man would be proud of following many more decades than Mark was given. Katie, Laura and I am sorry that we cannot be with you today. Mark and his loved ones will be remembered in a beautiful Italian church.

Rev. Harvey & Nancy Kandler left a message on July 25, 2012:
Dear family of Dr. Mark: We prayed for Dr. Mark twice a day, evenings at mealtime, and upon going to bed ever since we knew of his myeloma. May the resurrection of our Lord conquer that evil disease. God has the last word and it surely is Easter! We thank God for Dr. Mark's skill and knowledge in treating me for prostate cancer (cryocare) which has been very successful. Surely God has blessed us through his abilities. In life and in death, we need Thee, O blessed Lord. His death is especially difficult to read about, since our maid of honor died the same day of ovarian cancer, so we take two of God's saints and return them to their Creator, sustainer, and redeemer. For all the saints, who from their labors rest....Thanks be to God! The Rev. Harvey & Nancy Kandler, Retired clergy, Kaukauna
Bill Stotzer left a message on July 25, 2012:
Katie, Christi, Connor, Riley, and Jack. I have many great memories of Mark from both our time at Notre Dame and since graduation. He was a great friend and will be missed by all. He always had a great time and enjoyed the present better than anyone. I wish I had the talent to ski (water or snow) as well as him. I am sorry for your loss. Stotz
