It was Mark Brown's funeral today. Sadly, I could not attend, but my thoughts are with his family today. I have fond memories of meeting Mark and we regularly exchanged emails. He's been at deaths door a few times before so this wasn't unexpected, but sad nonetheless. I hope that we can continue with his Missing Episodes project well into the future.
I never knew him or even had any direct contact with him, but I owe him a lot: without this forum giving me the inspiration, I probably would never have written and published my books. So, R.I.P. Mark Brown, and my sincere condolences to all of his family and friends.
