Eligibility: Users under 18 years of age are not eligible to use the Services without consent. Users between the ages of 13 and 17, can use the Services with the consent and supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age; provided, however, that such parent or legal guardian agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, and agrees to be responsible for such use of the Services. Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

        • CA Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

1. Scope

This Policy covers the Site in part and as a whole. However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy.

Please check the privacy policy of any third-party site you interact with on or off the Site.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Company shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.

Company will also use the information to measure and improve the Site, and to provide you with customer support.

Company may contact you with new or updated products or services, designs, routes, surveys, or other related announcements from time to time. You may opt-out of all communications except essential updates. Company may include Content in the e-mails sent to you.

Certain software applications and applets transmit data to Company.

Company may use the information collected to prevent potential illegal activities. Company may also use a variety of methods to detect and address anomalous activity and screen content to prevent abuse.

Company will not tell the advertiser who you are as part of this process. When you interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that you may receive a cookie from the advertiser.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore, Company restricts the Site and all other provided services to persons 18 years or older.

Marc was a fraternity brother of mine and unfortunately our paths haven’t crossed since college. But my memories of him are fond. He was a first class guy then as I have no doubt he was for his entire life. Sandy, my condolences to you and your family.

I am so sorry to learn of Marc's passing. I knew him from high school days. I remember Marc as a "good guy" who was kind, caring, and always smiling. May happy memories bring you comfort and warm your hearts always.

I'm a couple years older than Mark and because we were in the same High School Fraternity I would bump into Mark quite often. What I observed was that he always had a gleam in his eyes and since I didn't know him that well I wasn't sure what that was all about. Now that I have read most of these posts from the people who knew him well I now understand. He was a loving, warmful, soulful and sincerely caring guy.
I wish I knew him better.
So sorry for his family's loss.

I am heart broken that Marc left us. I was fortunate enough to live around the corner from the Appels where that became the nucleus for many family events, dinners and celebrations, along with Grandama Mollie. It was not unusual for Marc to leave the table because he wanted to play outside with his buddies. This did not sit well with Aunt Goldie, but she knew how important it was for him to have a ball in his hand. The Samet clan had many cousins, some of which Marc had a special bond with. But he never treated anyone differently and always had a welcoming smile. The saying goes that nice guys finish last, but not in this case. He will be first in the hearts of many. Rest in peace, my cousin.

There was never a time you ran into Marc where he didn’t greet you with a warm smile and sincerely asked how you and your family were doing. May his memory bring the same smile to all of you when you think of your husband and dad.

Although I have been out of touch with Marc for quite a few years, I remember him fondly as a kind and sweet young man. We had a lot of fun in those college days and I know that Marc will be seriously missed by his family and friends. There was no doubt that Mark was destined to be a successful lawyer, always giving back to his community. My condolences and prayers are with you all.

Marc's death leaves a tremendous void in my life.
Our friendship spanned 54 years, starting at College Park where we roomed together for 1 1/2 years.
We shared a great love of sports, especially for Maryland basketball and Ravens football. Marc would frequently jump out of his seat, disgusted with a call or play. He was passionate and knowledgeable about sports, politics, world events, and life in general.
Marc "walked the walk", incorporating his sense of justice and moral clarity into his work, family life, and friendships. He was a brilliant attorney who served his clients well. If I needed legal expertise, Marc responded immediately and usually refused payment. Until two weeks prior to his death, he was determined to work on his professional files, and appear in court, albeit with an aid driving him and a walker supporting his frail body.
Anyone who knew Marc marveled at his dedication and adoration of his family. Outside of work, his world centered around Sandy, Lindsey, and Morgan. Vacations always included the kids, first as infants, and recently as buddies, along with their much-loved husbands. Marc cherished his grandson, Brooks, who gave his "Saba" much joy.
I'll always remember fondly our shared meals, Florida visits, and days spent relaxing at the pool. Most of all, I'll mourn a best friend who cannot be replaced.

Dear Sandy and Family,
There are not enough words to express my feelings of loss for my lifelong friend. Living across the street from each other on Sunset Road, walking to Pimlico Elementary together and celebrating birthdays together are some of mind fondest memories. All the sports we played together, Marc's competitive spirit of never giving up is the way I will always remember him. It was great reuniting these past few years, we just picked up where we left off. Rest in Peace, Marc.

Dear Sandy, Lindsay, Morgan and Family,
We are so saddened for you and with you. Marc was a wonderful family man and friend. He was so proud of and devoted to all of you. He treasured his friendships and relationships both new and old and had seemingly endless stories of his adventures to entertain one person or a crowd. He was funny, smart and, more than anything, proud of and devoted to his family. We hope all of the beautiful memories of your life with him will give you strength and bring you comfort.

Dear Sandy,Lindsay and Morgan
It's impossible to put into words how very grateful I am to have been close friends with Marc, ever since meeting him in the ZBT house when I was seventeen
I recall going through a difficult time, and Marc telling me not worry,because if worse comes to worse,he'd put me up at his home
He was always there for so many of us
None of us in our youth ever worried about an anti semitic attack,as while a genuinely nice person,everybody knew that he was one tough guy who was very protective
I never knew of a more loyal person
While a very smart lawyer,everybody who knew him,knew that he had an old school code of ethics,that were unchallenged
I was so pleased to have lunch with him on my visit last month to Baltimore
Rest in peace, my good friend

I was so saddened to learn of Marc's passing. He and I were very close friends all through high school and college. When i think on those days Marc is usually right next to me either consoling or encouraging me. He was such a kind generous and loyal friend with a smile that could light up a room. I very much regret that our lives drifted apart after I left Baltimore . However, even though those MuSig and ZBT days are long gone, there will always be a special place in my heart for Mark. My deepest sympathies to Sandy and his kids, but you should know that he will be remembered as one of the real special people that made a difference , and made us all much better people. Rest in peace my friend.

Dear Sandy, Morgan, Lindsay and Family,
Although Rita and I knew of Marc's illness, we were shocked and saddened to learn of his passing. Marc and his family go back many years for me. My parents and his had been very close friends for years. Goldie and Phil were the best. Obviously,, they passed these positive attributes to Marc and Mike.

Mark was a genuinely caring person and goodhearted in every way. His professional assistance was always appreciated throughout the years. Of all the tributes that are due Marc, one stands out that I would like to share you.

During the Shiva of Marc's brother Mike, he pulled me aside and said that he wanted to make me aware of something. He wanted to tell me how appreciative he was of the many times my father, an automobile mechanic, helped him with his car repairs. To mention this, during this time of grieving was astounding to me. If this is not the definition of "mensch", I don't know what is. This shall remain with me forever

Sandy, our hearts go out to you and your entire family.

Hi my name is Betty Fulmore-Thomas and I am the ADR Coordinator for Baltimore County Circuit Court. I met Marc, in 2018, when I started with the county. He was always a pleasure to talk with and any cases I assigned to him he handled with the upmost professionalism. When I lost my husband in 2020, Marc, was one of the first mediators on our roster to reach out to me. I will always be grateful to have known and worked with such a wonderful person. Marc will truly be missed.

I wanted to offer my condolences on Marc’s untimely passing. Marc, Ricky & Lewis Silber spoke to my parents about me pledging ZBT. When they left, my mother said why can’t you be like those boys. I told my mother that I wasn’t that smart. He was my pledge master & a friend for life. Always had a twinkle his eyes when he saw you & would speak of his daughters. A great guy.

I remember Marc walking in with a hand full of books to read , but he always made time to speak to my parents
We are so happy that we got to see you both for dinner this past winter and discussed your travels and those to come . May Marc’s memory always be a blessing to you and the family and May he Rest In Peace 🙏❤️

Time goes by so fast that you don’t get a chance to see the people that you grow up with and then you hear that they’ve passed on. Just wanted you to know that Marc was really one of the good guys and that’s for sure may his memory be a blessing to all of you and let him rest in peace

Marc was a great guy who loved his family very much. Marc and I were always the last one in the office working usually till 6:30, 7 pm or later and we had a saying depending on who left first " Your in charge and you get to lock up" which I would reply "what a half day" Marc, we will miss you my friend and never forget you!

Everyone seemed to know Marc Appel, and he was truly loved by all. We were so glad we got to see him one last time. Rest In Peace Marc. ❤️❤️

So stunned and saddened to hear about Marc. We were fraternity brothers, ZBT at College Park, and played softball and basketball with and against each other for decades. He was a great guy, and one of the most competetive athletes I ever went up against. We shared several softball trophies. He also left me with 10-stitch scar on my lip from his intense basketball defense; I gave him a hard time about that for years. He loved to talk, loved to debate. I haven't seen him for a few years, but I KNOW he didn't back down to whatever faced him in the end. My condolences to the family. A good man.

Marc, or Mr. Appel as I knew him, was an amazing man whose gentle and welcoming demeanor made me feel part of the family from day one as Lindsay and I became fast friends our freshman year at McDonogh over twenty years ago. We've lost touch as careers and building families of our own have taken us on separate paths, but I am forever grateful of the time spent with your family and your dad's hospitality and warmness through the years.

It is with a very heavy hand I write this message. I met Marc over 20 years ago in aerobics class . He was so kind and sweet. Many years later he became my tenant. What a dream to deal with. I realized this week I had not gotten a check from him. I emailed him yesterday and did not get a reply. So unusual. Today I called his office and left a message on his direct line. I told him I was concerned he did not respond and to please let me know he was ok. I had a feeling something was not right. He was always so punctual.
I was absolutely shocked to see his name on Levinson's site. He was such a gentleman. I know he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Please accept my deepest sympathy. May his memory be for a blessing.

Dear Sandy, Lindsay & Patrick, Morgan & Timothy, Brooks Elliot and Rita,
We promised ourselves to make this brief, but the only thing brief is our friendship…we are the newbies!
Despite anticipating this dreadful outcome, the last couple of weeks and getting that dreaded phone call early this morning, seeing Marc’s name and photo on the Levinson site still hit us with such a jolt. How can it be when just a few months ago we wined and dined in Florida or that just a few weeks ago you were anticipating a get away at the beach. That’s how fragile life is…one day you’re making plans and the next day, you’re gone. That’s how this disease is, it just sneaks up on you, shattering all your dreams and plans. I guess this is what’s meant when you hear people say, “we plan, G-d laughs.”
Interesting how the grieving in the recent death of your cousin and our friend is what brought our friendship to fruition. How we enjoyed listening to Marc’s pearls of wisdom and his gusto and animation whether it was talking about sports, politics or the athletic prowess, or academic and professional accomplishments of his girls, Lindsay, Morgan and Sandy! We enjoyed our debates, gentle bantering and listening to Marc’s opinion on everything from Judaism, ethics, to his experiences growing up in Baltimore, attending City College and the University of MD, membership and brotherhood in fraternity, wrestling, to the origins of the Appel name. We will miss our weekly (Sunday) phone calls discussing sports (NFL draft evaluations), politics and where each of our next travel destinations would take us.
Marc, we will miss you! May your memory forever be a blessing. Baruch dayan ha’emet.

Mark was great at and enthusiastic in everything he loved and under talk. He was a great McDonough soccer coach although he had never played soccer before, an empathic and thorough attorney, an adoring father who kept us apprised of Lindsay and Morgan’s fantastic career journeys, to their great embarrassment, an indulgent and proud grandfather to Brooks, an attentive husband to Sandy and a great friend. Our condolences to Sandy, Lindsay, Patrick,Brooks, Morgan and Tim, to Rita and the extended family. I hope that the plentiful memories of how fun it was to be with Marc eventually overcome our sorrow and yours at not having more of those events to come.. Loving memories, Rhonda and Matt

Dear Sandy & Family,
I’ve know the both of you since high school. Although Marc was a year behind me, we were in Mu Sig together. We did a lot of partying & socializing
It appears those years were kind of special because all of us remained friends forever. I haven’t seen Marc in a while but when we did run into each other, we’ll it just seemed like it was yesterday. I’m sick about learning about Marc. My thoughts & prayers go out to all of you. See you Thursday, G-D Blesd
