Mark Halvin was born 9/15/64. I met Mark in June of 1999. He spent two months trying to persuade me to go on a real date, which we finally did on 08/11/99. We married two years later. He passed away unexpectedly on 7/22/08. He was my best friend and my soul mate. He had more virtues than I can enumerate. He was loved dearly, and influenced the lives of more people than he realized. The most important people often live and die in relative anonymity. Mark was important, and he was loved.
