Tete y familia. Mis mas sentido pesame por la muerte de mi gran amigo Sergio. No saben la pena tan grande que senti al enterarme de su partida. Siempre lo recordare como una de las personas mas alegres que he conocido. Lo extranare y recordare por siempre.

Siempre recordaremos a Sergito como un ser extraordinario, simpático, alegre y optimista. Era agradable hablar con él por sus conocimientos y experiencias. Somos afortunados de tener a nuestra querida Marisa, su hermana, como nuestra nuera o mejor dicho, otra hija.

Descanse en Paz y que brille para él la luz eterna.

Sergio was a dear friend. The international trade trips we took together were memorable. I learned of Sergio's passing after the mass and was sorry I could not attend the wake or the mass. Sergio was a caring, fun person to be with. I shall miss his friendship.

I am already missing his emails, telephone conversations, and mostly his sincere and caring friendship. I am sure that his family will miss much more than me. Ana Teresa
