Cindy, Chantel, Chloe and Sierra - I am at a loss for words to express my sadness in learning of Mark's passing. You are all in our prayers and thoughts at this time.. You may have left Litchfield, but not our hearts ,love, Jan, Frank, Scott and KevinPosted: 02/23/2013 by Doxey Family of Litchfield, NH,
Cindy and the Baldwin family,
I was so saddened to hear the news of Mark's death from Monica Cote-I was snowshoe/camping with Scouts from our Troop on Mt. Cardigan at the time. I know there are no adequate words of comfort at this juncture, but I know the world had been made a much brighter place by Mark though his awesome...and yes, humorous acts of genuine caring. The stories he told at our Pinkerton Academy reunions always included pride and joy in his family. Thank you for sharing him with us.
Warm and kind thoughts to your family from ours,

Cindy and the Girls,
I had prepared a brief message to honor Mark in case it was appropriate to do so. I wanted to share my thoughts since I did not have the opportunity to do so. Here we go.
Though I was not as close to Mark as many in this church / room I consisdered Mark a good friend and I think Mark considered me to be a good friend of his.
I want to say a few words and tell 2 quick stories.
Any time my phone pinged stating that I had an email or call coming in and I looked down and saw the name Mark Baldwin 2 words came to my mind.To quote Jim Berry "BIG FUN". This did not happen often but when it did I just knew I was going to have "BIG FUN". I can remember the time Mark sent me an email of his dog in a weird outfit and 2 days later he sent me a picture of my dog in the same weird outfit in the Baldwin Home.How he got my dog to his house is still a mystery to me .The subject line was simply "HA-HA". I laughed for an hour. The phone calls were alwats to invite me to an event albeit a cookout,lets go play golf,or am putting together a Hurricane Party at the Apple Orchid. He also called me now and then when he was traveling to NY or Maine to see if I was in town..might we meet for a beer or dinner. When we connected it was always "BIG FUN".
2 quick stories. Many many years ago I was at an event and I mentioned to Mark that I had some terribly crummy bushes in the front of my house. Not even sure why I mentioned this to Mark.But the next day I heard a noise in front of my house and I went outside and there was Mark on a backhoe diiging out these crummy bushes. First off back then I never knew Mark had a backhoe and of course he had a big smile on his face when I asked him What are you doing? I am ripping up your bushes for you.Quite a guy.He actually got stung by a bunch of bees that day.
The 2nd story was more recent and this was a big event because honestly I dont even remember talking to Mark that night.But evidently I did and mentioned that we were having a shower head problem.Most likely knowing Mark was handy I was simply asking for some guidance on how to correct the problem. Of course the next day around 8am the door bell rang and who was standing on the front steps but Mark and when I asked what are you doing here he simply stated I am here to fix your showerhead. And 10 minutes later he had done so. Just the kind of guy he was. Listeneing to many people tell stories at the wake,funeral,and at your home I quickly found out that he did this kind of stuff for everyone.
I will finish with this. What I admired most about Mark was that he was truly a Family Man. He loved you 3 girls and was so proud of the way you have matured and grown into terrific young ladies.He and I often compared notes as I too have daughters.
Cindy,if Diane told me once she told me 100 times,that Mark and Cindy always did things together , whether traveling,cooking,walking/running,etc..I quite franky other than when Mark was on his moped cannot recall a time that you 2 were not together. A wonderful Family Man. He adored you all.
I do not have any magic words to make you feel better.All I can say is I hope time does heal your deep wounds.Mark was a terrific guy and will be terribly missed. God broke the mold with your husband and Dad.
My sincere condolences to you and the Girls.
God Bless Mark Baldwin.Posted: 02/23/2013 by Heffernan Family of Londonderry, NH,

Cindy,Chantel,Chloe and Sierra, I was stunned when i heard this awful news. I'm sure you all are at a loss for words. You had a wonderful husband and an even better father. I can only hope to be half the dad Mark was. He was one of the kindest and most welcoming people I've had the honor of meeting. He helped me out more than he could ever realize. I hope the upcoming days and weeks and months get easier for you guys. I've got a special little place in my heart for The Baldwins and i know you guys will be alright with the great family and friends you surround yourselves with.

Terri and family! I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers are with you at this sad time... Posted: 02/20/2013 by Janice Washer of Manchester , NH,
As Mark's cousin, I had not seen him in many years, and oh how I wish I could set time back and gotten to know him.I spoke to him recently when my mother (his aunt) was ill and he was so warm and reassuring that he was "there" if I needed anything. And I don't doubt that for a minute. Watching the video sanpshot of his life brought both tears of joy and great sadness...joy for the love of life and family that was so evident in the pictures and much sadness for the loss of a shining light in this world. I am so sorry for this unexpected, untimely loss of your son and husband. I'll keep you all in my prayers for comfort and understanding, as this is not the order of things...a child gone before a parent, a loving husband and father gone before "we" are ready. Peace be with you thru this new journey in your life. With love and heart felt hugs, GailPosted: 02/20/2013 by Gail Howald of Greensboro, GA, USA
