So sad to hear of the passing of Marco. He and his lovely wife, Gerry, loved to dance. They were always so happy and smiling as they would dance by the bandstand and wave as they passed by to the musicians. It has been over one year since I have seen them due to the pandemic but was hoping to see them at the next opening dance. They had a great relationship and life as you could just see it in their actions and in their eyes. They would even take trips with the band. They had a great time. My condolences go out to his lovely wife and entire family. Remember, Marco is in a better place now and we will all be back together one day. May God bless you, Marco.

Though we haven't talked for some time, we were so very sad to learn of Marco's passing.
Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories. Marco, a beautiful soul, so many beautiful memories.
Please know we are praying for all of you, for peace, comfort, for whatever you need right now.
