from John McGourty of NHL.com,
“This has been a pretty special life for all of us,” Mark said about himself, his brothers Murray and Marty, and sister Cathy. “Gordie says the only way he can give back to the game is to make himself available to the people who keep our sport alive. I don’t think there’s ever been an athlete who is more accessible to the fans. That’s his most enduring quality, the way he is with people. It’s not a phony thing—it’s all natural. He loves to be around people.
“I’ve noticed that after people meet my dad, they never talk about the hockey player, they talk about Gordie the person that they met.”
