I just listened to your friend's mom 's voicemail. Hilarious. Love when people are appalled.

Mark, dude, you really went through a rough time. Your treatment and recovery story is sobering.

I can't say I didn't know this or that because obviously I didn't know anything. But I do see a very complex and varied life. You are still a mystery to me.

Mark, what courage shines through this recounting of your life so far, one full of both love and challenge.

Thank you for sharing with the world. A pleasure to read, to experience.

Warm regards,

Joan Watterson

Looking through your life has been a journey of a life lived and loved.

It's been a pleasure to view and, no, I never knew Jay was a Barefoot Bandito!

I'm so sad at your deep loss in losing your partner Charlie. I like that he loved to travel and I hope you two got to see more of our vast, wide world before he shed this mortal coil.

Peace, my friend. You were a wonderful friend, so long ago.

Rick Medland

This site was a distinct treat to page through.

I felt slightly voyeuristic because it is so sincere and sentimental, but that feeling decreased with every page. I know many of the people in these pages, including your parents, their friends and of course your friends - but I don't know you. I have memories of you from Lakewood but I feel like I would certainly have been impressed by your vocal talent had I only known! I took lessons from Blaine Goodridge in the summers but never studied formally. I sing a little in an ensemble locally but limit the opera to the shower!

Thank you for sharing this....again, a pleasure.

Stay on top of your health - your story needs many more chapters. Wishing you all the best.

Hi Mark

Just a quick note to say a huge THANK YOU for your great support of Kenora Pride last week and the Winnipeg Symphony Concert last night.... I had hoped to connect with you after the concert but it didn't happen.

If you are in Kenora for a few more days, it would be great to chat with you over a coffee...... I did catch up with Lenard and Edward for a few minutes at intermission. Perhaps they could join us.

I have recently moved back to Kenora after a number of years in the concert hall /symphony management circuit in Toronto (Roy Thomson/ Massey Hall / Esprit Orchestra) and losing my partner to cancer too.

Drop me a line if you get a chance

Hello Mark,

I hope you remember as I was the man who cleaned your apartment back in the early 90's and it was always a joy to take care of your needs and your clothes and I just happen to come across this that Charlie passed. To say I am heart broken about this is just makes my heart hurt. Both of you were always kind and considered towards me back in the day. I just wanted to let you know that I did care and I am sorry I missed your part before I left to live down in south carolina.

much love always
