He will be fondly remembered by those who knew him. God bless our father, Mariano who is now reunited in Heaven with his father, mother, wife (Argentina) and brothers (Franco, Pietro).
When tomorrow starts

called my name
and took me by the hand;
elevated rpGIE The angel said my place

and that I’d have to leave
all those I dearly love
elevated rpGIE But when I walked
through Heaven’s Gates
I felt so much at home
When God looked down
smiled at me and told me
