It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of Mario Valladares (Cienfuegos, Cuba), husband of Mila Polo (Cienfuegos, Cuba), father to Joelvys (Las Vegas, NV) and Mayulis (Cienfuegos, Cuba), grandfather to Xavier (Cienfuegos, Cuba).
In Mario's memory, I've made Four Days in Cienfuegos free on Kindle for the next few days. I hope you will send your prayers and thoughts to the Polo-Valladares family.
If there hadn't have been an iron curtain embargo separating us, we would've had forty years of feasts and laughter and weddings and funerals instead of four days together. There should've been more pictures, more stories. Maybe these new changes between the US and Cuba will let the real healing begin.
