Best wishes to your family also; I know how hard it is for them to have to watch you go through this. Sincerely, Pat Boudreaux

Dear Mark, My thoughts and prayers of speedy recovery are with you and your family. Rest knowing you are in great hands and this illness is all a part of God's Divine Plan for your life. You take care and pray for us on a daily basis so I know so many of us here in East Texas feel honored to pray for your healing. Thank you for all that you have done to make our lives better. I rest assured each night knowing you are watching over us with your God Given talent of weather forecasting. Most of all, I am touched how you are such a sweet man..to your wife Beth, you children and grandchild...But also how you embrace with love and grace your friends at KLTV. My favorite memory of you was when you lived with Brad and Sally French (my brother in law and sister) and one day you so lovingly babysat my 3 month old daughter Catherine Elizabeth way back in 1994 and you said you were delighted to watch her because you missed your own children.
So just take it easy and get well! Just know your incredible depth of faith is an inspiration to me. I also think you have one of the most beautiful singing voices I have ever heard. Please let Beth know we are praying for her too! Lots of love and admiration always, ~Mary Zorn

My family and I moved to Tyler three years ago from Arkansas. We have since moved to Gladewater. When we first moved to Tyler it was your smiling face on the nightly news that made us believe that we had made the right choice in moving to this area. Every night we sit down to watch channel 7 and wait for your report on what our weather will be like that night and the following day. Our children loved Santa Scirto this past Christmas most of all. It was amazing to them to see you transformed into the loving jolly man that you are.
We hope and pray that you will continue to improve in health and come back to your extended family soon. Rest and know that although you are missed terribly, you must take all the time needed to make sure that your health is at its best.
We love you and miss you Mark. Take care.
Ray, Betty,Brandi,Amanda, and Samantha Bunton

Dear Mark, Just like all of the other concerned people, my whole family was shocked to learn you had fallen ill. As one person stated it was just like learning of something happening to a family member. Your happy go lucky spirit, the twinkle in your eye, your undying love for your family and friends, make each one of your KLTV viewing family feel as though you are a part of our family. Santa could not have picked a better helper last year, and most of us could not pick a better friend than we have in you. Please get well and hurry back to us. May God keep you safe and bless your family threw this troubling time. God Bless You Mark, Kim Hancock
