I know my Uncle Mars is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ this very day. He was truly one of God’s messengers here on earth. He spread God’s message to everyone he met and guided many lives and hearts towards our Savior. I mourn for my loss and for all of you in the loss of such a great man. I’m sorry I cannot be there to help comfort you at this time of sorrow, but will pray to our Lord to bring peace to each of you at this time. With Love, Tina.

Mario will be missed but we know he is with the Lord, Mother, Father, Brothers and Sister.
Mario did not judge anyone and was one of the most giving souls on the planet. I wish I could get back to Columbus but I will not be able to make it in. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, Love David
