Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful world

    

I am sad, my mother's best friend died yesterday. I saw her on my last trip to Venezuela, always showing the same personality: kind, humble, helpful and with much love for my mother.

I'm sad too about my mother, the friendship of which was for life from a young women that they were struggling and working to educate and bring home the best way, caring for spouses and children.

 

My mother recalled yesterday a story from her friend who described her character full of compassion for others:

Mrs. Felipa one day being very young, traveling by bus when she saw a woman crying inconsolably, she asked what was the reason for her weeping and disconsolate woman replied that her daughter was sick and had no money to buy medicines doctors had prescribed, Mrs. Felipa looking in their pockets, but had no money to share, more looking at her hands was a ring which had been a gift and was a jewel fine, then took it out of the finger and I give it to the woman, saying: Take Madam, I have no money but you go and sell this ring and buy medicines for your daughter.

 

So my mother remembers, generous and loving, someone who shared joy and sorrow and prayers and illnesses in the final years, some day we all are going to die, but at the time of death we always shed tears. I'm shedding now mine for my mother's friend.
