Mo was a big Sweetheart! He was always so good to us and our grandkids when we stopped by his store. We loved his sandwiches and how clean his store bathroom was. He truly loved his kids and his face showed that love when he talked about them. Mo was a good man and we will truly miss him. Love you Mo, we'll see you again one day!
