Yago Garin Martinez
When the heartache subsides, I have to come up with a new word, because 'thank you' is not enough. In this gray December, we have had the warmest hugs from all those who we already knew loved us. In everyday life, we fail to take the time to listen to how much we love each other. Please forgive us. When we received the worst call of our lives on Tuesday, December 6th, from that moment on and without stopping, we have been surrounded by so many hands, fed with shared tears, covered with words of comfort and lent so many hearts that the word 'thank you' is not enough.
