Mario Jr.

He looks down on us daily. He watches the pain we all have at times but he also watches the wonderful things we do as well. We have an angel member. The other person and reason we are all here besides Kris Santoianni.. ……….MARIO TERZO♡
Kris and Mario started this club 12 yrs ago together. With the same dream. The best person to tell his story is Halfkut. It’s very hard for him to do so let’s help him along. The history new members should know and old members to remind them for a few have lost there way. Tell us about your best friend.

I DON’T REALLY KNOW HOW TO START THIS. THE CONVERSATION ABOUT IT ALONE HAD ME IN TEARS. THIS IS OUR (CHI-TOWN LARGE CARS) 12TH ANNIVERSARY. 12 YEARS AGO, IN A CHILLI’S RESTAURANT, 2 BEST FRIENDS CAME UP WITH THE IDEA OF “THIS THING OF OURS.” 10 YEARS AGO, ONE OF THOSE FRIENDS PASSED AWAY.

LET ME REWIND. MARIO “HOLLYWOOD” TERZO JR AND I WERE BEST FRIENDS. WE HIT IT OFF THE DAY WE MET. OUR DADS WORKED TOGETHER AT ALTOM TRANSPORT. MARIO WAS LEASED ON THERE. MARIO WAS ALLLLL ABOUT THE SHOW. NOT TROPHIES, BUT THE SHOW. THE SHOW ON THE ASPHALT EVERY DAY.
MARIO WAS THE BEST FRIEND A GUY COULD ASK FOR. MARIO WAS LOYAL, KIND, AND LET YOU KNOW WHERE HE STOOD. HE WOULD GIVE YOU THE SHIRT OFF OF HIS BACK. HE WAS YOUNG, GOOD LOOKING, BUT HE WAS A LOVER NOT A FIGHTER. LOL. HE LEFT THAT TO ME AND HIS BROTHER ERIC. A BIGGER HEART YOU WOULD NEVER FIND. HIS FAMILY MEANT EVERYTHING TO HIM. ESPECIALLY HIS NIECES AND NEPHEWS. MARIO HAD NO KIDS OF HIS OWN.
I GOTTA BE HONEST, IT’S HARD FOR ME TO TYPE THIS. MAYBE IT’LL BE BETTER IF I VIDEO AND TELL SOME STORIES. I’LL PRE-APOLOGIZE FOR THE TEARS NOW. IN A WORLD WHERE LOYALTY IS ALMOST A JOKE, FRIENDSHIP IS THROWN AWAY LIKE IT’S NOTHING, AND HEART IS NON EXISTENT, ITS HARD TO TALK ABOUT MARIO. HE’S THE MOST GENUINE, HONEST, STRAIGHT UP PERSON I’VE EVER KNOWN. THOSE ARE QUALITIES I MISS…..A FRIENDSHIP I MISS. A BROTHER I MISS.

BEING OUR 12TH ANNIVERSARY, I’LL DO MY BEST TO TELL YOU ABOUT AN AMAZING MAN, WITHOUT TOO MANY TEARS. JUST KNOW THIS, HE WAS AMAZING. WHAT YOU ARE A PART OF TODAY, IS A DREAM FROM 12 YEARS AGO. A DREAM BETWEEN 2 FRIENDS. A DREAM I LOVE AS MUCH NOW AS I EVER HAVE. A DREAM THAT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME. YOU’RE A PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL. IT ISN’T A NAME. IT’S SOOOO MUCH MORE THAN A STICKER. IT’S A FEELING. A DREAM. A LEGACY. IT’S A TYPE OF PRIDE UNMEASURABLE. IT’S A FAMILY.

THERE’S OTHER CLUBS, OTHER SHOWS, OTHER FRIENDSHIPS. WHAT I CAN TELL YOU IS THIS, NOBODY WILL EVER APPRECIATE YOU THE WAY I DO. NOBODY WILL EVER BEND OVER BACKWARDS FOR YOU THE WAY I DO. EVEN IF WE HAVEN’T MET. WHY? YOU ARE A PART OF MY BEST FRIENDS DREAM. YOU ARE A PART OF MY BEST FRIENDS LEGACY. YOU ARE MY FAMILY. BLOOD IN. BLOOD OUT.
LET’S DO HIM PROUD! -KUT

Rest in Peace
