Condolences for Mark E. Szuchmanski
I’m so sorry to hear Mark passing away. We did so many things together as cousins when we were kids. My condolences to all my cousins.
To all Marks sisters,
My heart breaks for you. No words can heal your heart at this time. Know that I’m thinking of you with love and praying for strength.
Dear Becky, Laurie, Mary, Julie and family,
I’m so sad to hear of Mark’s passing. I have many childhood memories of hanging out with Julie and Mark. It felt like we were all family on 43rd street – running back and forth between our houses and doing all the normal things kids do. I only talked to Mark a few times during our adult years, but I can still vividly remember the sound of his voice. I’ll keep that forever in my heart.
My thoughts are with you – I’m so sorry for your loss.
Sorry to hear of your family’s loss. Mark was my best friend all through grade school at St George’s and at Prep. Hugs , prayers, and love to all of the family.
I am very saddened to learn that Mark has passed. I had been talking with him on the phone a few times in the weeks before he died. Please know that I and my family— as well as the crew from Prophecy— are sending love.
Although saddened by Mark’s death, I am also glad that such a good man lived and proud to call him my best friend! Many good memories arise when I think of Mark. Camping at Kyasutha (?), watching horror movies on channel 35 during countless sleepovers. The memory I remember most is when we first met 56 years ago. We both pricked our fingers, rubbed our finger blood together and pronounced blood Brothers for life. Till we meet again!
