It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Mark on May 24th. He had just completed a wine tour when he suffered a heart attack at 5:30 PM. Paramedics arrived at the scene within two minutes and tried for over an hour to revive him, but he never regained consciousness. We want to extend our sincere appreciation for their efforts.
We also want to thank everyone who has been reading his blog and voting for him -- he reached number two in the ratings just a few days after his death. He would have been so pleased to have achieved that level of popularity.
Mark was an exceptional man: honest, hardworking and sincere. Our love for him will never die.
Riposarti nella pace, fratello mio.
