    "I am saddened to learn that two treasured members of our community were killed in a helicopter crash in Pennsylvania. Mark Croce believed in the resurgence and potential of Buffalo when not many others did. Mark took a chance on developing in Buffalo, and in doing so, he inspired others to follow suit. Mark was the spark, the catalyst, of our downtown core’s rebirth. He was so committed to our city and region, a true believer who worked to make Buffalo a better place. My heart goes out to his family.
