Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

I didn't know Mark, but when I saw he'd passed away I did a search on some of his old posts.

He didn't post much but what he did was fucking HILARIOUS. LaughLaughLaugh

Blue ones, Mark.

Never met Mark but we exchanged a few jokes via PM. I remember this post and I nearly peed my pants. http://www.dropzone.com/...ost=1815777;#1815777 Laugh

BSBD Mark. Unsure

Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

Unfortunately I never got to meet this exceptional guy. After reading his posts, he seemed to be one hell of an individual. The world always needs more creative thinkers. I have no doubt that he will be truly missed by all that he inspired. Blue skies, relax, safe trip. Unsure

Blue Skys Mark... also didn't know you...

But I do like his sig line...

Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm in absolute shock. Mark Foster was an amazing man in my life. He was so generous and went way out his way to love and care for me. When I thought I had no friends and everyone left me, he was there and even came down to Florida over the holidays to freefly with me at Lake Wales. He was such a gentleman. I just called his cell today and thought it was really odd that he didn't pick up or call back.Unsure

I love you so much Mark and am in so much pain that we can't jump down here for awhile..but ya know what?...I'll be at your cool dz up there someday soon and make it up to yaWink

Blue Skies My Friend, Fly Free...Cya Soon!

Re: [RkyMtnHigh] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you to everyone.
Tonight was hard. There was a full otter load of hopnpopers at sunset for Mark. I'm really drunk right now, but I will post photo's tomorrow.
Tomorrow is going to suck.
Hope to have a drink with all of you that I haven't meet.
Thank you again from everyone in Baldwin.

Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks DQ for posting in bonfire ... I was looking for it. A few of us tipped back a few to Mark tonight in the cities.

Jesus C.... Mark was a helluva guy - never an unkind word about anyone and ready to help you out in any way. Always looking to make someone else's day (pizza, wine, making a wise crack to make you giggle ...)
This is a HUGE loss ...
and it sucks big time Mad

We'll be jumping with 'ya in the biggest sky of them all someday, Mark!

"Maudit marde" ...
Miss 'ya, my friend

Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

Mark was really particular about flossing his teeth morning and night and taking his vitamins daily...perhaps that is why he didn't look anything close to his actual age.

When he came to Lake Wales and hung out with me for a weekend, I sung Karoke and he thought "wow, you're brave to do that" while he drank some milky liquor drink...then I got him up there on stage for "Love Shack" by the end of the nightSly Lake Wales loved him and expected him every holiday season between Christmas and New Years...it was his traditionSmile Since that weekend, we spoke weekly since to stay in touch on our life events...he was always so upbeat, positive, encouraging...again, amazing person!

I feel beyond blessed and privileged to have had such a wonderful man in my life...

Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

Mark Loved Hop n' Pops.

The NPSL (regional NSL league) has half of its meets in Baldwin. I fly the tail slot and my team was usually first out. Mark and I were usually sitting next to each other near the door. He had the best positive attitude, always in a good mood and ready for a laugh.

Blue Skies, Mark!

Mark was a good friend to many and was such a generous, kind person. He was always cracking jokes to make people giggle.

Re: [dqpacker] Mark Foster [In reply to] Can't Post

Mark....
You were one of the most generous, non judgemental, fun loving, kind hearted people I've ever met. You greeted all with your big smile and confused all with your goofy shoes. I'm so glad you had a trailer this year so you could experience the DZ the way all should at some point. And I'm glad us girls were able to give you our show a few weeks ago, I still remember that look on your face and all you could say was "WOW!" I will miss you a ton and look forward to the day we meet again. God Speed my friend!
