Adios Tony

Introducing the Pierini DIET here

Last Friday my wife and I hosted a good-bye celebration at our home for a young man we know who is leaving Sacramento for new opportunities elsewhere. Originally from Mexico, he moved to Sacramento about four years ago and, most recently, worked as an accountant for the State of California.

Tony became our surrogate second son and my wife and I became his spiritual mother and father. We did lots of things together and, like a good son, he regularly sought our counsel to guide him in doing the right things in his journey of life. We had the opportunity to meet his mother and father and siblings during our trip to Mexico City earlier this year. They were very grateful that we were keeping an eye on their Tony.

Early this morning, Tony departed Sacramento for San Antonio, Texas to temporarily reside with his sister who lives there. He may then find his way to Maryland but promises us, actually himself, that he’ll soon be back to Sacramento. Whether he does or not, one thing is certain and that is he will always be our spiritual son.

Here’s a short video I made for Tony and as a pleasant memory for me:

Adios Tony.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
