She was a dedicated mother. She was a passionate therapist. She was also a devoted fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the professional wrestler turned actor.
On Saturday, Pizarro’s 19-year-old son posted to Twitter about his mom’s affection for Johnson, in the hope that he would see it and send a tribute that could potentially be used during the 43-year-old’s funeral.
On Sunday, the son said on Twitter that Johnson had gotten wind of his request and responded.
In a video just over a minute long, Johnson said he turned on his phone to find “a flood” of Tweets about the “devastating loss” Angelo Pizarro and his family were enduring.
Her son was elated by the video, and sent back heartfelt thanks to Johnson. “I can’t stop smiling knowing she’s smiling so much. Just, thank you,” he Tweeted.
