      Dear Fran,
      Fifty years ago, I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Mario on the overnight shift. I was a rookie, and he was just a few years away from retirement. I would kid him that he started on the job the year I was born and from time to time, we’d grab a hot dog and a cup of coffee at Tahoe’s. We send our prayers for comfort for you and your family and hope that all of your good memories keep Mario in your hearts until you’re all together again.
