Mark Cole was a lovely young man, he is no longer here. I remember him at a certain age, like many of my friends, stuck in time, somewhere between passion and growing up. Mark was very kind to me and deserves my thanks, so thank you Mark, thank you very much for your kindness.
Mark had a family and lived and worked in Europe rather than the UK, I offer my condolences to everybody who was touched by him. Mark also was a force within the Edelrid company where he did much good work. I was very sad not to see him at the Summer trade show.
On the back of Marks photo is a little bit of writing from Saint Exupery. I'll just quote a few lines.
"In one of those stars I shall be living
In one of them I shall be laughing….
You will always be my friend
I shall not leave you".
