There are no words to express the sorrow that I have in my heart to lose such a dearest Uncle. There is no replacement for a person like him. I will always remember him. May his soul rest in peace. Goodbye Uncle Mario

Mario Jacques Family

My wife Carla and I would like to express our deepest sympathies to Mario's entire family and loved ones. I have known Mario since 2005 after he joined the Administration of Villa Marconi. As a former President of the Board of Directors, and a family member of residents at the home, I had the privilege and pleasure to get to know Mario. He had unique skills and was always thoughtful and respectful in his interactions with us and our loved ones. During his time at Villa Marconi, Mario touched many residents, staff, family members and others in a very deep and profound way and I will always remember the positive impact he had on the Villa Marconi Family. May God bless and protect all of you during this difficult period. Mario, until we all meet again in Paradise. With our utmost respect and appreciation, Marco and Carla Pagani

Mario's family.

To Mario,
We go back a long way.
Throwback of the 70”s and 80”s we arrived , we struggled, we put a brave face and enjoyed the new Canadian dream. We have lots of fond memories.
We cannot foresee the trials and misfortunes along the way, we can only live our lives the best we can. And I sincerely believe, we did.
And now, you have embarked on your final journey. A little too soon, perhaps !
We wish you fair winds. And in our prayers, we entrust you to the merciful care of your Father and your God !
Farewell. Your absence will be felt .
My heartfelt condolences accompany all your dear ones amidst their grief and their loss .
May God Bless and Keep them all.

May God comfort you and fill the gap created by the death of your father. The God of the orphan will look upon you, He will guide you, protect and provide for you. He will keep you under the shadows of His wings. And God will lead Mario home to life everlasting.
