    My sincere condolences go out to the Green family. I spent time with Mark playing basketball and softball on a lot of the same teams. We also worked at Giant Foods at the same time, Mark was generally a good man, sorry time got away from us, we spoke from time to time over the phone to keep caught up. May you rest in peace my friend.
