I want to tell his family that your family has not left my mind. Your children are my children's friends and I want to send my sincere apologies and condolences to you.
What has happened is very painful and I really do not know what to say. It came as a very huge surprise for me." Wilbroda said.
Adding that in as much as he is gone, at least for the last couple of weeks they had spent a lot of time together and for that she is grateful.
Even in his last moments, he had so much joy and so many ambitions. In this last month we have done so much with Papa and I think God knew and that is why Papa was giving us his last goodbye
