Letter to the Editor: Thanks to all who made Mark’s celebration special

MarkTo the Editor:

On behalf of the Shevitski family may I please send out a huge thank you to all of Marks friends who attended his Boca service. We tend to do things in our own special way here on the island and I think Mark would be very pleased with the beautiful, honest, funny and heartfelt tributes paid to him.

Some very special people helped make this all possible. Darlene Rivera, Master of Ceremonies JT Turner, Betsy Joiner, Kathleen Turner, PJ’s Seagrille, Smitty and Hudson’s, Kevin Stockdale and The Temp, Joe Weir, Father Jerome Carosella, Donna Moore and George Robinson, Boca Grande Fire Dept., Nat Italiano, Cindy & Bill Townsend, Marjorie Webb, Mary Keevil, The Boca Beacon, Dusty Hopkins and family, Susan Bowers, Mike Weddle, Brandon Riker and Spike Smith, Lora Barmann, Mary Beth Miller, Beth Perkins, Claudia Bently, Brandon Bowen, Jim Wyman and Clyde and Caroline Nabors.

Special props to our beloved island which Mark cherished and loved so well.

Peace be with you all.

Brian Shevitski and Joy Wyman
