    :(

    Yes tin snips... whenever I look at mine, I shall remember him. He pointed them out to me, he inspired me.

    Damn what a loss. My thoughts are with your family.

    Thank you again!

    In addition to the many kind words and remembrances, we have received several inquiries regarding the sending of gifts to Mark’s service/celebration in April. I and my family appreciate the kind gesture. Firstly, know that the wonderful response in honor of Mark is already the best gift we can receive. And I know Mark would be overwhelmed by this outpouring of appreciation from the Modding community. However, for those still wanting to do something, please be aware that we have set up a donation fund in Mark’s name for the Washoe High School Computer Lab -- near Mark’s home in Reno. (See www.mkmods.com for more details.) Mark greatly valued teaching/mentoring and it is our feeling that helping others with their learning and education in his honor would have been most satisfying to him.

    Oh man. This was really unexpected! I love Mark's work, he was an amazing modder.

    I wrote a note to his family on the page...

    "Buy tin snips first".

    *sigh*

    OMG this is just awful news!!!!! I had many conversations with Mark through PM's about modding and what not. Oh man, this just brings tears to my eyes:cry::cry::cry:

    Battling a serious illness can be very bad, and one thing that we can all believe is that he is in a much better place now. With all the help he gave freely, he is probably the lords "right hand man!!!"

    God Bless you Mark for being the most awesome person you were my friend. MK will be dearly missed in this community:cry::cry::cry:

    I feel that we should have something in the forum dedicated to Mark. Hes put too much into the community here to just be forgotten. there has to be something we can do. maybe sticky something. I dont know. but at the same time i dont want people to forget who he was and what he did. sorta like an engraved plaque -- but obviously you cant hang one of them on the interwebs :(

    Threw some PM's and talks. We'll have something via "gear" tribute in his name. Mailman, pete, and w1z has agreed to go on it.

    Also,
    I'm thinking that I'm going to tribute my case in his name.. Throw a thread out there in the next two days on maybe that or filling the seat he left for the tribute case..

    When Mark first started posting, I had this feeling he was one of my uncles. Not just the wise man who you could swear in front of, but my real Uncle Mark K. After I did a little looking, I found out he was in Reno, and my uncle Mark is in NY.

    Even though he was not my real uncle, I thought of him as Uncle Mark. Pete and family, you have my thoughts and prayers.

    WOW, I missed this and I can't believe it!!!!!!!!!! Mark was just such a great guy, I even spoke to him for nearly an hour on the phone once, felt like we had known each other all our lives. Just hope he's resting happily now and wish his family the best!

    The best way that people can help at the moment is through the page:
    http://www.mkmods.com/obituary.html
    I hope Jeanette doesn't mind me posting this, it's from an e-mail:
    This is a great idea, and no doubt what Mark would have wanted. I know there are some of us that can't contribute financially (me included) so I'd be able to contribute towards an MKmods rig. But, if anyone can help financially, the school computer lab will benefit massively.

    Mark talked about that kid a lot. Tried a few times a year to get "lan" parties together just so people could learn and play.

    Next pay I'll be adding to the fund..
