Dear Dorothy and Tony Adame Jr; Nacho and Kelly Adame, Matt and Suzette Adame, Lena Saguing; Delia Ortiz; Ernie and Jesus Martinez; and Rylee, Nacho, Jr., Jenna, Neenah, Jaysenia, Destiny, and Nayeli Adame:
I am heartbroken to hear word that Tio Tony Adame has died. You have my deepest condolences. I am sending positive thoughts and energy your way so please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry that I never got a chance to say good-bye, and I will miss Tio Tony Adame because he moved me in so many ways.
It is so difficult to express how I feel. I remember growing up and paying a visit with Tio Tony Adame, Mama Lola, Tia Soco and Tia Maggie, Uncle Dave, Uncle Ramiro, Grandma Jovita, and our Mother, Esperanza Valentina Duarte Chavez. Tio Tony was such generous member of our family. We all had such wonderful times together way back then!
Teilhard de Chardin, the French Geologist said,
“You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.”
And, like Tio Tony Adame, we are free to pursue new journeys, and we are free to experience new discoveries while our spirits too learn what it is like to be human.
If I should live to be half the man Tio Tony Adame is, I ought to consider my life to be fulfilled. But if I should live to become the man that Tio Tony Adame: our wise elder and a brilliant & outstanding a 'role model whose spiritual being, together, along with my mother, Esperanza, have taught us to truly to appreciate what it's like to learn to be human.
Please know our love and support will always be here for you. We will keep you all in our prayers.
May God bless you and May God be with you.
Paul Timothy Duarte Chavez Diaz-Nies
