    Mark was an awesome softball coach to me, my sister and Stephanie. I am grateful to the Lundgren family (Mark, Punk, Stephanie and Beth) for welcoming me as one of their own for so many years as I was growing up and even as I got married and had children. God bless Mark’s soul. Hugs, love and prayers to his family.

    Beth, Steph and Ilene, we are so very sorry for your loss. You all cared so well for him for so long; your unconditional love was apparent. I enjoyed caring for Mark when he was here periodically at Genesys and he was very sweet. He will be fondly remembered.

    Mark was a great guy. His music leadership and talent contributed so much to each service at St. Mark’s. We asked Mark to play at our wedding and he graciously accepted. We will never forget that wonderful night, especially his renditions of Helplessly Hoping and Tears in Heaven. May he finally rest and his family be at peace.
