Lynn and daughters, I love you all and my heart aches for you.

When I met Mario 30 years ago in El Centro, we were instant friends. At the academy, he always spoke of his wife and six daughters with love and pride. I asked him once if he wished he had had a son, and he instantly replied, "No, cause the girls all spoil me."
Upon returning from the academy, your family was my family, as they will always be. You gave my daughter a loving home while I
Mario walked me down the aisle when I remarried and Lynn was
my matron of honor. Mario, I will always be there for your family, as you were there for mine.
