  1. Mario, Mario. I don’t even know what to say, my old friend. I cannot shake the thought of you from my head, the memories, ever since I heard the news. You had more of an impact on me and my life than you ever knew, in a positive way, and there will always be a place for you in my heart because of it. On my rides to and from work lately I have been listening to songs we used to listen to on the car rides we took when we used to hang out, and I still have the bottle of cologne you gave me back in 2013; I wore it to your service. I will miss you whenever I think of you, and certain places and things will instantly bring your face into my mind as I continue on my own journey along this road. I will do my best to honor you, my old friend, and keep your spirit close to me always. I love you, man. Rest in Peace, and I’ll see you when I see you.
