I had Mr. Albert as my chemistry teacher at HCHS. He was also the advisor for the As Schools Match Wits team. I remember his class with great fondness. He was truly a special teacher and a special person. My deepest sympathy for your loss.

I grew up next door to the Aberts on Edward Street. I have many fond memories of long conversations with Mark over the grapevine fence in the backyard! My sincere condolences to Carl, my former classmate, and all the Abert family on your loss.

Mr. Abert was one of my favorite teachers at HCHS 20+ years ago, and I can still recall all the enthusiasm with which he delivered his lessons. What little I know about chemistry today is all a product of his class. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mr. Abert was one of the most kind hearted and inspirational teachers I have ever had. He truly loved all of his students and didn't hesitate to remind us every single day. I will never forget all the lessons that you taught us - in both chemistry and in life.

Pauline and family, Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss. I can't even imagine how very difficult the last few months must have been for Mark and for all of you. My husband Jeff and son, Andy have fond memories of Mark up at Camp Moses teaching archery. For all that he contibuted as a scout leader, he was and will always be remembered as the consummate Boy Scout! God bless! The Krawczynski Family
