“To Marios Family
I'm so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Mario from our times running around in Peterson growing up! We later worked together at GNC and he was so fun to hang out with, always smiling and laughing. We were able to reconnect this summer and I will always cherish the visit we had when he came to Spencer to see me, and the text messages we had daily! He was such a great guy! I will never forget him!”

“Mario Adrian. I miss you. I miss everything about you. I miss talking to my best friend every day. I miss my "morning" texts. I miss your feisty personality. I miss doing your laundry for you and you telling me what to bake you each week. I miss you stopping over after a stressful day at work and having a drink and watching Impractical Jokers or some other funny show. I miss your laugh. I miss your smile. I miss how good you smelled all the time. I miss how good you were with my kids and I love the bond that you formed with each of them. My life was forever changed when we met and I am so thankful for every day I got to have with you in my life. You are one in a million and I can't wait to see you again. I know your mom will always have you as her guardian angel. I love and miss you Arms 💜💔”

“I was so shocked and sad when I heard this devastating news. I met Mario little over a year ago when he was dating my daughter. My husband and I both instantly liked him, he was so kind, so caring. Mario was so good to my daughter and her sons and in fact became their Godfather. My condolences to the family; he will be greatly missed.”
