 Absolutely, Tommy.   

For those of us who loved this Mark as a soul, it was a very sad thing to see him retreat from and avoid outreaches from his long-time friends.  His obvious self-esteem issues, although quite understandable for the times, distorted my feelings/prejudices towards gays for decades.  It really wasn’t until about 15 years ago that my attitude lightened and I can now see sexual preference as an (almost) irrelevant issue among whole and complete human beings.

Mark Adkins was a super nice, happy 😃, loving, and thoughtful teenager. He was a great friend and easy to talk with. I had no idea he was gay and it breaks my heart that he felt compelled to hide it from so many of us. It would have made no difference to me....  I am sure he knows now how we all feel about him. He was a good guy and a good man 💐💕.
