Daisy (Jane's) message to Marky Boy There were 100 of messages posted in the GasRoom following the tragic passing of Mark Philo on Saturday 14th January. Perhaps none as moving as these three from a family who helped out with Mark's lodgings during his Youth Team days.

marky boy I am one of the luckiest men alive. my family and I were privileged enough to have Mark and Stuart Hole as our lodgers while they went through the ranks of wycombe youth. They both became true members of our family. Today my wife and I were privileged to be with him and his beautiful family during his final hours. We feel honoured yet devastated. We would like to take this opportunity to say thankyou for all your kind and sympathetic words..... marky boy you will never be forgotten. cheers son ..HITCH YOUR WAGON TO A STAR XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX ALL OUR LOVE BRUCE, LINDA, DAISY, POLLY

You lived with me for four years and became my big brother as you became part of our family with stu (Stuart hole).I watched you every game,when we got home afterwards we used to have a laugh with the rest of our family. I made you all a cup of tea and every one used to say it was to milky.You dont no how much i will miss you but i will always remember you as my big brother.
