    You were one of the greatest people I’ve ever met. I learned a lot about a sense of humor and the benefits of a hard shot from the point from you. You’ve honestly had an impact on me that most will never have. It will be too long until I see you again on the ice and I wish I got another chance see you again.

    I will forever miss my best friend Mark Haubner. He was one of the nicest people that I’ve every met. He was the friend that ALL of my friends loved because he was respectful and caring towards others. Everyone invited him to their house because there was never any problems. In my eyes he was the coolest person to be with because he knew alot about cars and bikes. He was never afraid to get his hands dirty while teaching me a few things. He was always there for me when I was down in the dumps. Now, I am there for the Haubner Family. My heart goes out to them dealing with their loss.

    I love you buddy!

    Dear Beth, Frank, Ryan and Shawn,
    Time passes so quickly and we lose touch, but your family has always remained in my memories. I can always remember Mark tagging along behind my boys and his older brothers, that little grin that could melt your heart. It is truly a great lose. But what an extroardiny young man to have been an organ doner and unselfessly save other lives. You did a wonderful job raising a wonderful boy. He will live on in all our hearts.

    There are no words to say how much you will be missed by us. You were the best. You have such a kind heart, and I will always remember your smile. When I saw you at family events you would always make me laugh. That is the person you were. You brought light into a dark room. Where ever you are right now, I pray that you are happy and at peace. You will never be forgotten by us…never…

    Lots of love,
