I have known the Medina family for many years, back in kindergarten through cub scouts where Mr. Medina was a cub master with my dad.
The rest is history!
The Medinas could not get rid of me, I would be by their house almost everyday during the summer months waiting and waiting for the twins to get out of bed so we can play.
I would sit in the kitchen where breakfast was being made and Mr. and Mrs. Medina would bicker back and forth (much like the show Everybody loves Raymond with the old couple).
Mr. Medina would go oh Rossi !!! cover his face and open his fingers slightly and look at me and smile. Then he would slam his hand on the table and say KID! Grab your coffee lets go outside.
The early morning or afternoon were the porch discussions where I would talk about my worries such as girls, cars or what to do with my life, stresses which now that I look back was not stress at all.
He would always give me a good pat and say Ryno the Rino!! Kid! you have it good, you stress too much. He then would give me some good advice… always ending on finding a good wife.. Then sometimes he would say let’s go for a drive and somehow end up at a coffee shop or drive around neighborhoods dreaming of a better place to live.
Other earlier times were good old fun where the twins would chase me around the house with a bebe gun (because I wore a target my shirt), and I went screaming to Mr. Medina who I thought would save me but grab me in a big laugh! “Here you go John take a shot”!.
I will always remember our fun vacation trips with the Medina family driving that big old Van, listing to Mr. Medina tell some type of story along the way.
I will miss this the most, and I have a feeling he is on the road to a new adventure, with new stories.
I hope he drops a hint or two on how he is doing
We love you PETE!
