Marc had his personal quirks and difficult traits, but the fine community work he did in establishing Poetry@Emack's series in Roslindale will live on in many people's memories. He hosted scores of readings at this venue for more than five years. And never once did he use it to promote his own work.

Thanks, Peter for that lovely remembrance, vivid to me still . So many poets of all ages supported by Marc ! His humanistic side was one of his great strengths along with his fine talents ! Hold the thought and pass it on !
