    I can not fathom anyone ever having an ill word or wish in regards to Sergio. He had a smile for anyone that crossed his path. I feel blessed to have known Sergio. He was and will always be a shining example for the love that we should all strive to show each other. I will miss him more than words can express. May he rest in peace.

    Dear Acero family~
    I am deeply saddened by the loss of Sergio. I was certainly blessed and the SCHOOL OF DENTISTRY was blessed by your son. He was a great ambassador and a testimony to the fine family he was raised in. his kind and broad smile will be remembered by many. You can be very proud of him and many many students loved your son and we all grieve with your family. May God Bless you and comfort you during this time of sadness and loss.

    Acero family, Sergio was a great friend, and I loved the times that we were able to spend together playing baseball, studying Spanish, and just talking about life. I pray that the Lord comforts you in this loss, and reminds you of the joy that Sergio brought to those he came into contact with.

    I met Sergio Acero when I was in 9th grade, he was very nice and always treated me with respect regardless of how others treated me! He will always be remembered! I pray that his family and friends find comfort during this time of need! Rest In Paradise Sergio

    Dearest Acero Family,
    There is now an empty space in the hearts of all who had the pleasure of knowing Sergio, but we are all better people for having known him. He brought such joy to us all with his radiant smile (very natural that he was to be a dentist) happy and fun loving disposition and his dedication to his friends and family. May you be comforted by all the beautiful memories and by the knowledge that you will one day be reunited with him in paradise.
    In deepest sympathy,
    Eric and Regina French & Family

    My deepest sympathies to the family. I was blessed to have taught Sergio at Northeastern High School. He was a pure joy to have in class. His personality and smile brought so much pleasure to everyone who knew him. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

  18. Carolyn, Joan, Lee, Rebecca, James & Earl

    The Acero Family, Our prayers and thoughts are with you. We will miss Him dearly, for he has touch all of our hearts in some way or another.
    Your Family at Goodies.

    Words can not give justice to the sorrow and anguish I know you are experiencing. Although we can’t understand why such things happen when they do, try and remember that God has a plan for us all and that your son is in a much better place and one day you will all be reunited.

    With deepest respect and sympathy.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Sergio was such a wonderful person. It seems as if He calls his best angels home early.

  25. Georgett Zaki

    Que las excelentes memorias que Sergio ha dejado en su familia y todos los que lo conocimos ayude a mitigar la pena de su partida.

  26. Raphael Levante

    I vividly remember taking a summer class with Sergio. During those six, condensed weeks we had to ace several computer software and present our individual projects for our final grade. Sergio contributed a great deal to the class and was willing to help his classmates in any way possible.

    A class-act and humble individual is how I will remember Sergio.

    My condolences to his family, friends and classmates.

    With sincere respect,
