This is so difficult to believe. A reminder that our time here is fragile and limited. Though I had only briefly known Mark in online interactions, the respect that was felt for him really reflects the esteem he was held in the community. May his family, friends, colleagues and co-contributors find solace in the fact that he positively touched so many of our lives in big and little ways alike.  My very sincerest condolences.

Shocking news and so sad. My heart goes out to his family and those who knew him better than I. Mark you will be sorely missed.

As we all are in shock and very upset I will always think of the good times I have had on this forum and the many, many people that Mark had helped. No matter how small the problem he would move heaven and Earth to help. I work night shifts and I would very often still see Mark on this forum still answering questions, way into the small wee hours. Mark I thought you'd gone on holiday after the knackering time getting Respin out? My heart goes out to your family. You rest now mate, we shall all look after Peppermint for you and keep you in our hearts.  :'(

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

OMG this is devastating, I never met the man but I considered him one of my closest friends

Utterly devastating news.

I knew from light chatting with him on various people's streams that he was not very well, but this has come as a massive shock.

Rest in peace now Mark.
Huge condolences to his family.

The community has lost a great developer and a great person.

Condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones.
I had several very pleasant online conversations with Mark last year, and he always came across as knowledgeable, pleasant, and a really nice chap.  He will be missed at the helm which he has steered so graciously of late.  RIP

Afternoon All

Normally I would say Good Afternoon but this is obviously not. I would like to echo the sentiments of the other posts in this thread, like you all, I'm stunned - Mark was but a year older than myself.
I don't know the circumstances, & frankly its non of my business, but I would like to extend my condolences to his family & friends, & to those of you that knew him through this community.
I couldn't class myself as a regular on here, & couldn't in all honesty call Mark a friend - I just didn't know him well enough - but whenever I needed help Mark was inevitably there & was indeed friendly.

He will be very sorely & sadly missed

RIP Mr Peppermint

This is a very sad day indeed.  He will be missed.  I had several interactions with him on this board and he was always super helpful.  He was the reason I was drawn to this OS.  My condolences to his family.

I first read about Mark's passing on Facebook last night. I couldn't believe it. I have learned so much from Mark. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. I will surely miss him.

Thanks Kendall for jumping in, it's very much appreciated.  I'm trying to do the Facebook thing etc.  However, at the moment, it's really difficult to get my head around things.  To say I'm absolutely gutted is an understatement of epic proportions.  I think everyone who knew Mark is in the same state of mind.
