    My memories of Mark Noel Smith:
    We both looked forward to good natured, yet highly spirited, bantering over our different values on politics, religion, likes & dislikes & which one of us was right or wrong.
    Our differences in our views and personalities was one of the things that bonded our friendship.
    We shared & enjoyed planning great food. The kind of meals people cooking only for themselves, sometimes find impractical. These meals were a source of nourishment for our belly and our soul.
    We were friends from the beginning, and over the years our friendship found a permanent place in each other’s hearts.
    I will grieve and forever treasure the memories of these things Mark and I shared.
    I loved him years ago, yesterday, today, and will love and miss him tomorrow and thereafter.
    RIP Dear Friend.

  • Our heartfelt sympathies go out to all of Mark’s family. He was truly one of the best! We will treasure our memories of the fun times we shared and we had many! We were within walking distance of him and will miss sitting on our porch in the summer visiting with him. We love you Mark, rest well dear friend!❤️😢
