IN LOVING MEMORIAL.
"The CBIS family is shocked and saddened with the passing of Mario, Allen, and Ron. These distinguished gentlemen will leave voids in our Company, in our hearts, and in their communities that will never be filled in the same way. However, we will honor their legacies by continuing the great work they both contributed to and championed. Fortunately, these leaders helped position our Company for success and we will march forward in the direction they so aptly agreed, pointed, and marched with us in. With our talented executive management team, our expert consultants, our Corporate Advisory Board Members, and all of our loyal shareholders, we will succeed."
