Mario... You were practically an uncle to me. As a kid you always treated me as one of the family. When my dad gave me a raise, you didnt think it was enough so you increased it by 50cents. lol... I remember my childhood very vividly and you and your family were a very big part of that. For that I will always be grateful. Only recently did we catch up/ You made it a point that i would once again be included in your family. Also for that I will always be grateful. What I'll be grateful for the most is the memories I have of you and your family and that towards the end I was able to reconnect with you. You were larger than life and it would be impossible to forget you and the man you were. its time to rest now, we'll all be there soon enough to keep you company.

so many pictures come to mind
whenever we think of you
It seems without you in our lives
things will never been the same.

What will happen to those lazy days
of summer we spent together;
When our lives were consumed with you
in your love, and in your smile.

What will happen to all those times
when we all looked to you;
No matter what happened in our lives
you could make the gray skies blue.

Dad, some days we hear your voice
and turn to see your face;
Yet in our turning...it seems
the sound has been erased.

Dad, who will we turn to for answers
when life does not make sense;
Who will be there to keep together
when the pieces just don't fit.

If we could turn back time
and once more hear your voice;
We'd tell you that we are thankful
for the life you created for us and
honor your name.

Please always know we love you
and no one can take your place;
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.

Today, Jesus, as You are listening
from heaven to our hearts;
Would you tell our dad
and give him all of our love.

Mario, Jo Lil Mario, Anthony, Cristina and Andrew Balestreri
