  8. Dear Amanda and family – it was such a huge sadness to hear of Mark’s death. I have so many very happy memories of him – careering round the sea on a Seadoo and your wonderful wedding and visits to your home. He was a lovely soul and part of a great family. I will be thinking of you all on Thursday and be with you in spirit. Much love – Val xxx

  12. I worked at Sowester and met Mark there. Always cheerful and willing to help out with advice or his time. When I took the “Grumpy Customer” calls for the Service Manager Mark was always willing to give advice and help to sort out a problem. By his knowledge the “false” claim was easily rejected! I know from our Son in Law he who worked in Swanage and whose car is looked after by Nick that he was much respected in the Town and did much for the town and residents. The photos seen of him with his Family and certainly with Grace and her horse events show the true love he had, A real pleasure to have been with him during those Sowester days especially at the Boatshows!!
    From Jill and I our special thoughts to Amanda and the Family – Rest in Peace Mark

  15. Our dearest Mark
    Such fond memories of you & the fun we’ve had over the years; Sundays on the boat teaching me to waterski & then there was the jet ski’s of course!!
    From Manwell Road when the children were small, to Ulwell Road …where Amanda often cooked roast dinner for us all followed by James’s apple crumble, not to mention Jens Prosecco!!!
    These memories we will always treasure, the special friend that you were to us both, we will miss you more than words can say.
    may you rest in peace
    you will live on in our hearts

    Sending Love to Amanda Grace & James
    We will always be there for you xxx
    Love Russ & Jen

    Russell & Jenny Foot
