This SUCKS. Mark you were one of the nicest, kindhearted people I have ever meet in my life. Thank you for all the things you did for us at baldwin. Tonight we drink to you and we wil be drinking your beer, you know the good stuff you left in your fridge. We will also be doing a sunset hopnpop load tonight, mark loved his hopnpop's.
Raise one for Mark tonight and all of our brothers and sisters we have lost so far.
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.
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.
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 ya
Blue Skies My Friend, Fly Free...Cya Soon!

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. BSBD DQ
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
We'll be jumping with 'ya in the biggest sky of them all someday, Mark!
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 night Lake Wales loved him and expected him every holiday season between Christmas and New Years...it was his tradition 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...

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.... 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!
