Not sure what to say?

Mike I am so sorry to hear about your fathers passing,I just found about it, all my best wishes to you and your family, Linda Tahmoush

Resting in peace Mr. Maglieri. It was an honor assisting you and your wife.

I remember meeting Mario when I lived in Los Angeles in the late 70's. When I relocated to the Coachella Valley I would occasionally come into Los Angeles and stop by The Rainbow Bar and Grill. Mario had a huge heart for people. He always gave you his time. It was a honor to meet him and know a true legend. God Bless his soul and his family.

I spent the summer of 1966 in Los Angeles between my second and third year of law school at U. of Illinois. A friend knew Mario and asked if he had any summer jobs available. Mario hired me to work at The Whiskey A Go Go and we spoke about his time in Chicago and him being a bailiff. He liked me and treated me like a son. Mario had me positioned at the front door of the Whiskey. I met countless celebrities and music icons. I never forgot Mario and what a great person he was. Fifty one years...

MARIO thank very much for your open heart the first time
All those years coming to the rainbow in 77 thank you Rest In Peace

May the God of all comfort be with family and loved ones.

I love you Mario

May the God of all peace bring comfort to the Maglieri family and friends at this difficult time.
