Mauro will definitely be missed. He was a joy to be around and I admire his drive and work ethic. I’m so sorry for your loss and wish I could be there.
The the thing I remember most about Mauro is that he was alway happy and excited to see me. Mauro stayed well dressed and loved golf. I will treasure the moments I was able to spend with him. We will play golf in heaven, I’m sure of that.
