I want to send my condolences to my daughter Daizha, her father Elias, her grandmother Connie, and the whole family. Mario was a very friendly nice man and I’m honored to have meet him. When my car broke he was the first one to offer to help me fix it and I’ll never forget that! All of the family will be in my continued prayers! God bless each of you.
