Condolence & Memory Journal

Elizabeth we have never met, my fault. I'm Mark's Canadian friend who did not show up last year in New York

Posted by Jimmy Johnson - Ottawa - Friend   July 17, 2018

I was the personal manager for Mark in the late 90s and it was a thrill I could have never imagined would happen having been a fan of him on "AMC". I was a new Manager and he entrusted me with his famous career and I can say in all frankness that he elevated my company having him as a client and we never looked back.
Thank God for Mark.

Eternal rest grant to him, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

You are in my prayers Liz. I have yet to meet Gabrielle. I remember when he told me that he found out you were pregnant and I had gotten a call from the casting director concerned that my client had been crying.

Love and light,
Karen Gunn

Dear Liz & Gabrielle,

I just read the news and I'm so sad for you and your family. I met you back in 2011 when Gabrielle was attending Landrum Middle School. My son Luke was in Middle School at the same time and we used to talk in the parking lot waiting for school to get out. Sometimes Mark would come to pick up your daughter. I remember you lived on Ponte Vedra Blvd and we used to talk about exercise and yoga and wellness. Mark was a great guy, from the little time I was able to get to know him. So very sorry for your loss.

I will be praying for you now and in the coming days.

Lots of hugs, Rose Herczeg in Ponte Vedra Beach
Please feel free contact me at any time!

God bless you!

I met Mark when we were in the same classes (same year) in school at the Mother of the Saviour Seminary High School. He was so much fun to be around and made my experience there a better one. He was such a big part of the shows we put on there - we knew then he would go on to fulfill his acting dream. Several years ago we met up again at our reunion and we immediately reconnected. We took a picture together and ever since that day it has hung on my refrigerator. Every time I'd see it it made me think of those great times we had in high school. Now when I see it everyday it will always remind me of the great person Mark was. When I received notice earlier in the year that we were to have another reunion this October I thought it would perhaps be another chance to re connect with Mark but that was not meant to be as God had other plans for Mark. I have no doubt that when Mark entered heaven he was greeted with the words - 'Well done, good and faithful servant' Rest in the peace of the Lord Mark. Frank Bruno, Trenton NJ

When I was in Middle School and High School, Mark LaMura came into a neighboring town to do some dinner theater. I remember he was in "Butterflies Are Free" and (I think)the other show was "Cactus Flower"....frankly, my friends and I would get our folks to take us to see him because he was so cute. It wasn't until I left for college and began to study drama that I realized what hard work it was!
I'm sorry he has past, but he left me with only warm and happy memories.

To Mark, a fellow thespian at St. Joseph's College. I'll always cherish the wonderful memories of "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off" - my first play and your last at SJC. I can envision you, Sue Ploszek and Julia Roach Duffy getting ready for opening night in heaven. Boy, are they in for a performance! Rest in peace, Mark. You left us too soon.

Condolences to the family of Mark. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

To the family of Mark Lamura,

I knew Mark when we were students at the old Mother of the Savior Seminary in Blackwood, NJ. Even then,he was a budding actor in the theatrics and I have enjoyed following his career over the years. I met him several years ago when he came to one of our class reunions. We had a great time then and, now, we are going to miss him. May God be of comfort to you in the coming days.

Mark LaMura was so much a part of the All My Children landscape. His character was portrayed with strengh & vulnerability. He was a joy to watch. Mr. LaMura may not have had issues being written off the canvas, but my opinion is that he was too pivotal to so many core characters (as well as to the audience). So many missed opportunities that would only enriched the story. Countless times i wanted to see Mark be there with his charming presence. My condolences to his family & friends.

Mark Lamura I am remembering all the great times you spent with the Taggart Family in Cliffwood, NJ. Especially as my brother Thomas's most dear friend and how you always treated my mother with such grace and elegances with attention and small thoughtful gifts. Truly this world will miss such a wonderful man as you. To your family I am very sorry for your loss, however heavens gain. All my prayers to the LaMuras to ease their pain at this time. Boy was Mark a great Football Player at Mater Dei HS. Everyone that attended Mater Dei during those years will never forget the Acting Productions performed by Mark and my Brother Thomas Taggart. With Gods mercy they are talking about old times now. My Prayers
