    Cathy thank you for letting us know about Mark. Let him know he is missed. I remember many years ago when I first joined Mark went through several Strats. He'd take a pic of the guitar in it's case on his sofa. That sofa became the most recognized on the TRDPI. He ended up getting a Les Paul R8 as I recall.

    Thank you for posting up about Mark! Glad to hear he’s playing, and has picked up the uke as well!

    Has Mark considered screen reading tech as a way to get back onto the forum? Lots of free options available, though the more established and full-featured ones typically have some sort of fee attached. Just thinking out loud, but it’d be great to have him back on here.

    Regardless, send him my best wishes!

    Truly sorry to hear about your brother. Very cool to hear that he's still playing. I was thinking along the same lines as what Chud just posted. I imagine that there's technology that allows persons with visual impairments to communicate via computer. Might be worth exploring.

    Cathy,

    Mark's participation predates me coming to TDPRI, I'm sure somewhere along the way I benefitted from his involvement here. For that I am very grateful.

    Well wishes for everyone. Prayers for his health.

    His continued playing is a tremendous encouragement to me on many levels, I wish for him to know so. I too am starting the process of going blind.

    Our bodies tend to "go" in bits and pieces over a finite time, but the breadcrumbs we leave behind in the hearts and minds of others are forever and I can clearly hear in these posts that Mark has left profound imprints of knowledge, love and kindness on many.

    Blessings to you all.
    Ed
