    Brother Mario, you fought a valiant fight against an insidious disease. May you rest in peace and be embraced in God’s loving arms. We had a lot of great memories and experiences along the way. You’ll be sorely missed my Brother. R.I.P. And may God bless Lupita and your family!

    No one can prepare you for a loss, it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that he is now resting in the arms of our Lord. My deepest condolences to you and your family. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Mario as I wish I did but knowing he was your husband and took care of you made me very happy, He departed from this earth but he will never truly leaves, because he is still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, he lives on…

    Estimada familia Gutierrez. Mi mas sentido pesame. La muerte de un ser querido es una de las experiencias mas devastadoras que puede sufrir un ser humano. A veces, la perdida pudiera parecer insoportable. Llorar puede ser una valvula de escape en sentido emocional. Dice la Biblia que “para todo hay un tiempo senalado, aun un tiempo de llorar” (Eclesiastes 3:1,4). De hecho, el propio Jesucristo “cedio a las lagrimas” cuando se aserco a la tumba de su querido amigo Lazaro, quien habia muerto hacia poco (Juan 11:33, 35). Jesus dijo: “Yo soy la resurreccion y la vida. El que ejerce fe en mi, aunque muera, llegara vivir” (Juan 11:25). La Biblia ensena que los muertos volveran a la vida. Bajo su mandato como Rey celestial, Jesucristo resucitara a una innumerable cantidad de personas para que vivan aqui en la Tierra, pero en condiciones de paz y justicia (2 Pedro 3:13).
