This weekend light a candle and say a prayer for Hugo Enrique López, who left us ten years ago today.
Then buy flowers for your beloved, read poetry by Neruda, defend social equality in unison with Fidel, Allende and Víctor Jara, play music by Marc Anthony and Marco Antonio Solís, and raise a glass of red wine for Hugo Enrique, Monito now at his side, with the solemn salute:

Compañero Hugo Enrique López,
presente !
Ahora y siempre !

yo te esperaba.
Yo no sufrí buscándote,
sabía que vendrías ...
pero con otro corazón
que amaneció a mi lado
como si siempre hubiera estado allí
para seguir conmigo para siempre.
I was waiting for you.
I did not suffer seeking you,
I knew you would come ...
but with a different heart
awakening at my side
as though you had always been there
to go on with me forever.

- Neruda
