Totally Heart Broken!! I last spoke to Mario the end of last year. Just found out about this sad news. The memories of working with Mario in Real Estate at both Century 21 and REMAX will always hold a special place in my heart. He will be greatly missed

I am so sorry to hear about Mario's passing. Mario, Dino, and their parents would always make you feel so welcomed in their home when we were going up in Auburn. Our thoughts are with Mario and his family.

I knew Mario from high school and would eventually cross paths with him many more times at numerous race tracks. It was always a pleasure sharing words with him. I was sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences...

We are sad to hear about Mario's passing. We have such fond memories of him and the entire family through our association with Five Cities. He made the game of softball fun for the girls. He was always so encouraging and no matter which way the game went, he always had a smile on his face and something good to say to the kids. We will miss him and his great smile. We will always have a place in our hearts for Mario.

Mario, my buddy, my friend. I love you and will miss you dearly. Your infectious laugh, your attitude towards life and the fact you lived it your way. Going out to lunch with you and how even in the shortest of notice, you'd say, "sure, how about the Ugly Mug." When I moved to Auburn, you were there to greet me. I miss you.

The first time I met Mario, he made me feel like family. The most uplifting person I've ever met with his positive outlook on life, his teasing sense of humor, his wonderful laugh and the best hugs ever! He will always have a special place in my heart. I love you and miss you.

Last Sunday's memorial service was just "wonderful". I thought this week about Mario's philsophy of "life is just that--wonderful" and have tried to adopt some of that in our lives this past week. He always looked on the bright side of life. What a great way to live! Thanks, Mario, for the encouragement of looking at things in a new and better way. We love you and sure will miss you. Until we meet again, our friend. I
