Today, exactly one year ago, our beloved Maria had her crisis. Four days later, on 7th November, she would leave us forever
It is one year since she left us, and many things happened to us during this time. Trying to find a horizon and a routine again, we had to live important moments without her. Birthdays, holidays, the first day at school and many other ocassions she was missed. We miss her every single minute.
We had to build us a new life. Thanks to mama, Maria and her teachings, we learned many ways on how to live our life and how to do that at our new home. A home she gave to us with a lot of love and she was only able to enjoy for a very short time. We learned the concept of home from her and we will live as she would had liked us to live this experience.
We had so many encounters and received so much support from friends. The last year, thanks to you, to the family and everyone we encountered on our way, we could a find again a new kind of "normality". A normality that should not be and is not normal at all, but one in which we expect a lot from the future and learn from the present, and that is living all about: learning and looking forward.
I want to believe, that we are standing again on our feet. You were an important part in the process of recovery. Something is clear, Mama, Maria will be always missed and the pain that her absence brings will always be present. But one learns how to live with it. It is an indispensable part of our history, a life chapter, that sooner or later and under other circumstances, everyone has to live.
We look forward and we are grateful for all friends we made on the way. Also for the friends of Mama that are now our friends
Even if we cannot see us, we know that you from time to time think of us and Maria just as we think of you. And we know that the time will come for us to meet again.
Thanks for everything and until a next time.
Luis, Matteo and Diego
