Saying good bye to a dear friend

This summers has been very challenging in lots of ways and last week I found out a very dear to my heart friend was in the hospital. I prayed for him to recover and be good, he was so young and with so much to live but sadly for me he passed away a couple of days ago. He was more than a friend to me, he was my soul brother, the brother I never had. He left behind two beautiful treasures, his kids, my nephew Andres (14) and niece Alexis (10). I know  Alberto will live forever through his kids, they both are such sweet and beautiful souls.
It hurts a lot to know he is not with us anymore, I love him so much. It has been hard for my family, my kids and my husband but I am surprisingly very calm. It hurts deeply but I feel in peace and I know it is because he is with me.
I do not consider myself very good at painting but since I knew he passed away, I have been painting, this has been my way of dealing with my sadness.
Alberto was so talented, a true natural artist. I remember all the years I saw him creating gorgeous Mexican folk art. He was so happy when he was creating, it was a great inspiration to see his work.
I LOVE YOU Betito !
You will always be in my heart !



For you my friend with all my love !!
