I knew the Vilaboy family growing up, Mark was Maria's older brother they were a kind family that got along really well. I enjoyed each and every family member. I ran across this searching for my dear Maria. I'm sorry to the Vilaboy family for their loss. And I am still searching for my dear friend Maria.

I was just on the SFS website and saw where Mark passed. I am so sorry for your loss Larrie. I was a classmate of marks for 3 years. He was a great person back then and a big influence to me. It was an honor to have known him. Bob Cummins

I have been one of the lucky ones who has been fortunate to see his smile, and be exposed to his humor. Thanks Mark for making me laugh.
