Mario had an impact in our industry and didn't have a clue. His passing has brought us to share memories pictures, and express how grateful we are for his contributions my thoughts and prayers are with his beloved wife Nikki. It was so apparent to see the love and respect respect they had for each other. He was a man of Christ. You could feel the anointing, when you were in the presence of Nikki and Mario. He kept his faith and spirit until the end of his battle. You will be dearly missed.
