Gracias Tío, por siempre ser tan cariñoso y consentidor. Desde que tengo uso de razón, usted ha sido una figura importante en mi vida. Jamás olvidaré nuestra última conversación. Fue sabio y alentador ese gran consejo. Tal vez para usted fue insignificante, pero para mi fue justo lo que necesitaba escuchar en ese preciso momento. Al igual que mi padre y todos los Madrigal, usted nos ha dado el mejor ejemplo a seguir. Ser trabajador, generoso, e humilde, pero sobre todo amar mucho a la familia. Gracias Tío. QEPD.
