Mario was a great friend. I enjoyed working with him at South Post Oak. We were a family unit. He was a great co worker and we had many happy times. He loved his family and did whatever he could for them. He will be missed. I will be praying for strength for the family. I am here if you need me. May God bless and keep you and the family.

I have great memories of growing up with the Garza family. Mr and Mrs Garza were always together and were always hard workers. They remind me a lot like the Brady Bunch with something always good and fun happening at their house. Mr Garza will be received in heaven well and one day we will all smile with him together.
