    Poche parole per ricordare Mario e ringraziare per tutto ciò che abbiamo vissuto insieme nei lunghi anni dopo che ci siamo incontrati nei primi mesi del 1973.
    Tanti ricordi e gratitudine per i momenti arricchenti di collaborazione e condivisione.
    Un abbraccio a Luciana.
    Un caro saluto Donata e Bianca, che non vedo da anni, ed alle vostre famiglie.

    Cara Luciana, il ricordo di quando a Varese ci hai sostenuto nei nostri primi cammini di coppia è indelebile nella nostra mente. Le tue testimonianze così piene di spiritualità ci hanno aperto la strada per incontrare i VG. Sei sempre stata una donna forte e piena di vitalità e questo sicuramente ti aiuterà insieme a tutta la tua famiglia a superare questo momento che sappiamo essere un passaggio ma che comunque fa sentire la mancanza di una grande persona come Mario. Ci uniamo nella preghiera. Un grande abbraccio Sergio e Enrica

    Dear Luciana and family,
    We remeber Mario and you Luciana as missionaries in Romania, where we were able to first meet you. Our memory of Mario is of a kind, sweet, easygoing person. Our relationship with both of you in Bucarest was beautiful, agreeable and charming. We pray that his passing to the spirit world is in peace and full of love. We will pray for him and for you during this period of sadness. Love, Enrique and Marcia
