Dear Mario and Diane,
Im saddened beyond words to have heard from Theresa about the death of Armando. I remember him when he was little, when I had visited you in Colorado long ago. I read of the work he has been doing, and how clearly he was loved, cherished, highly respected nationally and internationally, and of his plans. What a lovely smile. Its hard to imagine what it is like for you, and there are no words. He was clearly a man who lived his life well, with passion, enthusiasm, humor, in service, and with much love. I wish I had known him as the man he became. He clearly touched so many people. My heart goes out to you, and my thoughts, love and best wishes are with you.
Abrazos,
Devra Weber (Los Angeles)

Mario and Diane,
I just found out on Friday of Mando's passing.
I don't think there are any words that can express my sympathy for your loss. I am here for the both of you, and my prayers will be focused on you and Mando.

Sincerely,
Todd

I am so sorry. I didn't know Armando, but our daughter is a Grinnell alum and reading what an amazing person your son was has been inspiring and heartbreaking. Bless you. He lives on.

I was Mando's counselor at Palmer High School and will always remember his infectious laugh and deeply caring spirit. He was a young man of impeccable character who will be deeply missed by each of us who's life he touched. My sincere condolences to Mario and Diane.

Dear Mario and Diane
I've never met your son and I can't even imagine the sorrow you must go through as parents. I hope that you can find peace and comfort in the love of your family and friends.
In Deepest Sympathy.
Your tax preparer.

Mando was a young man of remarkable inner and outer beauty. His spirit was so rich that his loss feels as if it impoverishes not only those who loved him, but indeed, the world.

Diane and Mario: In this dark time, please be comforted by the joy and vitality Mando brought to so many others, and, too, by the exceptional gifts you gave him both genetically and through your loving attention as wise and devoted parents. You gave your son a wonderful life, the best any child could hope for. And from that, we all benefited, because Mando's very presence was an encouragement toward the best in human nature and an invitation to see the goodness and possibility that surround us. Such lives – however brief -- are a rare gift to all who are touched by them.

Many grieve with you, but thank you, too, for giving this struggling world such a bright and beautiful spirit.

Que triste es perder a un ser querido en la muerte. En estas sircumstancias tan dolorosas, solo la paz que viene de Dios ( Salmos 83:18) puede comfortanrnos. Filepenses 4:6-7 dice "No se inquieten por cosa alguna, sino que en todo, por oración y ruego junto con acción de gracias, dense a conocer sus peticiones a Dios;  y la paz de Dios que supera a todo pensamiento guardará sus corazones y sus facultades mentales mediante Cristo Jesús.

my best memory .... Mando was at a Halloween party that my daughter hosted; he came dressed as Jesus and kept loosing his beard... we all had a good laugh. Mando always had us in stitches .. always the light in a room. He is now a bright light in the heavens. We love you Mando and send love and prayers to your family!
