Roberto J Aguero, arrived to this country from Cuba 49 years ago, years later I attended Miami Dade Community College and obtained a degree of Registered Nurse, I recently retired from Miami Children's Hospital although I am still active a couple of day a week. In 1980 I attended St. Simon's invited by a couple that have become very good friends, since then I decided that this was the Church that I wanted to be part of and with the exception of a few years attending Todos Los Santos I have been able to become a leader with the help of my wife and fellow parishioners.
