On February 3, 2007, Mark is first mentioned by Wendy the Waitress when she comes over to give the gang "the information for the next day". When she realizes they have no clue what she's talking about, she tells them that Mark has died and that he would have wanted them at the funeral since they were his favorite customers.
Unfortunately, the gang doesn't remember Mark and struggles with the idea of going to the funeral on Superbowl Sunday. But after seeing Carl yell at a customer that wanted to skip the funeral to watch the Superbowl, they cave. It isn't until they stand above the open casket, that they remember who Mark is.
