Tchô Tonio!

"Dear Sir or Madam,
The story of little Zoé touched me deeply.
Since I'm not rolling in dough, I'd like to know if it would be possible for me to volunteer for your various actions and events. I'd be delighted to lend a hand if I could.
I look forward to hearing from you
With best regards".
 - Anthony

That's how we met Anthony.

Since then, he's always been there to help us, and it's as if he's always going to be there, by our side.

But on April 23, two days before his 44th birthdayth birthday, life decided otherwise.

Anthony, Tonio for those who knew him, the one who timed his vacations around Zoé4life's events calendar so as not to have to refuse to come and help us. Tonio was there every year, scraping at the raclette stand, taking part in the Septembre en OR campaign or finding prizes for our tombolas.

With his angel's face, his smile that never left him, his joie de vivre, his infectious good humor and the big-mouthed side we loved so much, Tonio had his heart on his sleeve. He was an important pillar of our association.

We're going to miss Anthony. We're really going to miss you.

Say hello to Zoé and let's celebrate together, because apart from the fact that you left two days before your birthdays and that you left too young, you had this other thing in common: making every day a day of celebration.

Have fun up there Anthony, and in our sorrows, we'll remember that the most beautiful tribute we can pay to you, who loved life so much, is to savor every moment it offers us. Even more so today, when you should have celebrated your 44th birthday.

Tchô Tonio, it was an honor to know you and to have you with us.

Our sympathy goes out to Anthony's family and friends.

The Zoé4life team
