So very sad to hear of Mo's passing. I have not seen him years, but the last time I had, he had not changed a bit. He's such a caring, nice, sincere man. I have a lot of memories of Mo. He will be greatly missed.

We were so very sorry to hear of Mo's passing.   What a wonderful and happy man he was!    We loved calling pizza's in to him and before we could say anything he'd say "Tom, I know what you want.... I'll have it ready for you in 20 minutes".   He always made us smile and feel special!  May God watch over you during this most difficult time.
