    Mark was one of the beloved Wedelns and one of it’s most faithful followers and enthusiastic, helpful, and friendly members since the early 1960’s. Surely he is looking over us all, and the many students who passed his way. He led a full life. Once a Wedeln, always a Wedeln. May he Rest In Peace. Barbara Baroni Flanagan (Wedeln) and Ed Flanagan (former Innitou, and converted Wedeln!)
