Our thoughts and prayers to Mark’s family…rest in peace. Will miss your hello at bowing alley on
Dear Laurie and Doris and family
So sorry fir your loss !
May you know of no more sorrows !
To Doris, Bobbi, Heather, Laurie, Eric, Brian and family. I have always valued the relationship between the Oshinky and Rubenstein families. They were two of three couples who met on their honeymoon having married on the same day, 9/11/49 and spent almost every anniversary together. Our families spent a lot of time together when Mark, Bobbi, my brother, and I were little. When Mark and I reconnected we spoke about that often with him reminding me what I had clearly forgotten. He and I shared a special anniversary event with our folks several years back and stayed in touch since. My condolences to you all and all of us who had special connections with Mark. Heartbroken for sure.
You will always be a part of my childhood memories❤️ RIP
