Mitch and Carla Hoffman

Cousin Beth, Arlene, Wayne, and Michelle - This is an unhappy shock to all of us. We are so saddened by the loss of Mark, so young. I will always picture him with milk spraying out of his nose at me while baby sitting for him and Beth when we were children. You all have Carla and my love in this sad time.

Barbara Woods

There are not sufficient words that I can relay better than these excepted words from the poet W.H. Auden.

He was my North, my South, my East, my West. My working week and my Sunday rest. My Noon, my midnight, my talk, my song.
The stars are not wanted now; put out every one. Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun. Pour away the ocean and pack up the wood. For now, nothing can ever come to good.

I can't wait to be able to see and hug you, Arlene.

I met Mark a number of years ago, from playing baseball together. We shared some similar duties as Chicago North Baseball Officers. He is (and I say is, because I believe his sprit and goodness, will never die) one of the most decent and honorable human beings, I was ever associated with. I will miss his kindness, laughter and his friendship.
I can truly say that my life is better today and always, from having known Mark.
My heartfelt condolences to the entire Horwitz family.

Sarah Alexander

Michelle, we have been speechless after being told this unthinkable news. Nobody should have to go through what you have endured the past 50 days. We always adored Mark and enjoyed every minute spent with him, I mean how could you not?! You are not alone, your family will always be here to help you and lift you up. Remember, strong women raise strong daughters. Mark will forever be in our hearts, we love you so much. XOXO

Mark is an amazing human being.

His fun loving personality was infectious. He was one of the most loyal people I knew.

My heart goes out to all of the family and friends who ate grieving in these most difficult times..Beth and Arlene and wayne and Michelle and everyone else. It is hard to grasp or believe that this has happened that we will never again be able to play catch together or go to the batting cages together.

No matter how much or little we talked I always knew he would do anything for me and me for him.

He left us too early and may he rest in piece.

I still remember playing baseball when we were young and having Wayne yell from the stands... great hit marky!

We will never forget you Mark.
