It was a bittersweet and unlikely reunion in the Bronx this past week.
A nurse at a Bronx hospice went to greet her new patient and was stunned to find that it was her estranged father, who she had not seen in 41 years.
Victor Peraza left his infant daughter a lifetime ago when he split with her mother.
For the decades that followed they were never in contact.
But Wanda Rodriguez knew his name, and when her new patient at Calvary Hospital said that, yes indeed, he had two grown daughters named Gina and Wanda, she broke into tears.
Wanda reports to work a couple of hours earlier and spends time with her father, cherishing every moment they spend together.
