Humans of Downey - Mario


"I came from Cuba when I was six. Our family was fleeing Castro's communist take over of Cuba during the first Freedom Flights. But during that time of travel with my family, I knew I was loved by my parents because of the way they protected me. We were rich in Cuba and poor when we arrived in America. Then we worked hard to make it to middle class. I never had a doubt about their love.

"My first experience of puppy love was in high school. But it is a different experience when you are in love as opposed to being loved. I've been blessed with my wife. I've been married 30 years and known my wife 35 years. That love that comes with the comfort and knowing that you are going to spend the rest of your life with one person. Knowing that person is always there to share your dumbest moments, your funnest moments. It's great to have someone else to look at the world with. I'm truly blessed.

"Now, every person I meet, I try to give the other person a sense of comfort. A smile is a very easy thing to give so with every relationship I have I want them to have a sense of comfort when they are with me. I want them to know that there is nothing behind what I do."
