A Special Mother's Day Moments for Santi, his Mum, Brother, Teacher and two APCO Inc. Officers



By Richard J Ford (PRO -APCO Inc.)
Liverpool-NSW-Australia
May 8, 2016

 
 


Santi, in a motorised wheelchair, is going to church to receive his Reconciliation Confirmation Certificate at All Saints Parish Church, Liverpool on Mother's Day. This is Santi's unique choice of celebrating Mother's Day and not the usual way other children do, like wrapping some material gifts to give Mum on Mother's Day.

With him to attend mass and witness his receiving the Award Certificate are his Mum Dianne, his brother Antonio, his teacher and APCO President Pet Storey. His father is not with them on this occasion due to his work commitments in another state. 
He was introduced by Pet Storey to APCO Adviser and APCO President 2012-2014, and President of Visayan Association of Australia Inc., Jhun Salazar with APCO PRO  and Vice-President Fil-Oz Liverpool and Districts Inc. Richard Ford.
Santi was extremely happy to be with the group and thanked all of them at this rare occasion of being together on Mother's Day.
