My Story

Antonio was a courageous and fun-loving person, who had a quick wit and a sarcastic sense of humor. He was the type of person who really connected with people, and had something to share with everyone. He was planning to get his masters in child psychology when his cancer returned. Antonio loved spending time with family and friends, anything technology oriented, and was an avid reader. He also enjoyed movies and a broad range of music. Antonio put his heart into everything he did, and never gave up fighting his illness. He touched many lives, and was very caring towards his friends and family. During his illness, he often expressed more concern about how it affected those around him than about himself. The most difficult part of his illness for him was losing his ability to communicate with others. Though we are heartbroken, we have many happy memories of our time together.
