Genie, I sure hope you receive this message. You and Marco are two of my favorite people. I would have liked to have been at the funeral, but I had a really bad fall and wasn't able to make it. Please know of the great love I have for you and Marco. The two of you have always been so good to me. The last time I saw Marco, we were walking early in the morning at the Fashion Place Mall. He told me of his health problems, and I told him of mine. I wish you the best of luck, and if you need any help please call me. Sincerely, Hal Erickson

Our family will never forget our relationship
with the Brunatti family. Marco was my dads greatest friend and treasured fishing buddy and for that we will always be eternally grateful. Marco was a true friend to my father and mother for decades. I fondly remember the football coaching years of and those young men Marco and my dad dedicated their lives to support through their coaching effortsa d their trip to Colorado with that group.
Marco was a confident, helpful and compassionate man that we will always remember and appreciate for who he was as a truly memorable friend and mentor. The annual trips to their
family cabin will always be a highlight for our family. We will greatly miss Marco but we will not forget him. It was an honor to have him attend moms 90th birthday celebration thanks to the loving support from his family to make sure he attended. We won't forget that. Thank you Genie, Mark, Randy and your families for allowing us to participate in your family events since the 1960s. Marco will be missed but never forgotten.
