In 1999, true love touched my life. I met Meen (Marinus, MJ in this memoir).
Our love was colourful and exuberant. We were Birds of Paradise. Life was simple. Couldn’t be simpler, couldn’t be better.
I have a son, Santiago, and a daughter, Leonor, my angels. They have overwhelmed my soul with their love and kindness. I have two reasons to live for: my grandchildren, Tomas and Natalia. Instant Joy.
Canada welcomed my family in 2006 and we were all proud to be part of this beautiful country.
On November 23rd, 2016, I was dragged into a spiral of surreal events. His heart stopped. I lost hope.
These words are the written expression of my very intimate mourning process and my ultimate love tribute to him.
