You will be greatly missed. When I heard the news I was shocked. But at the same time, not really. It's not like you had never tried to kill yourself before.
I just wish you didn't have to go. You single-handedly revived my love of music. You inspired and influenced so many artists and fans alike. You were one of a kind.
I am glad that I got to see you play a show before you died. I am glad that I was able to feel giddy when you brushed by me on the way to the bathroom. And I am glad that Dave was able to share in that washroom experience with you.
RIP Mark. You will live on in people's ears and hearts.
