  5. Es increíble como la vida nos da sorpresas! Y el entérame de que Mario ya no está, realmente rompió mi corazón… ya que Mario fue una persona muy divertida y que nunca se metió con nadie, y te preguntas que fue lo que pasó, sin entender el porqué, lo siguiente es tener la convicción de que Él esta en un lugar mejor y pensar que Dios tiene un plan para cada quien, y tal vez en este momento no entendemos el porqué, solo nos queda pedir resignación para sus familiares y amigos!
    Mario te mandamos un abrazo hasta el cielo!

  6. Tragic and heartbreaking is an understatement 💔 so many prayers to this family 🙏🏼🙏🏼
