The full letter
“Not long ago I remembered this day as one of the happiest of my life. July 9, 2014, World Cup semifinals. Argentina beat the Netherlands on penalties and I went with my brother, along with my father and his partner, to celebrate to the Obelisk. What could be better than that for an 11 year old?
Almost 7 years later I find myself in one of the most distressing days of my life. It is inevitable to remember that moment, which of course is not the only one.
He was not the only place that accompanied me. Since we were very young we have gone together to recitals (Charly, The Who, Guns, Stones, Paul McCartney!), Sporting events, meals, and more. Whenever I was interested in a particular place, I was looking for an excuse to accompany me, even if I didn’t feel like it. In all those cases, working for fulfill his role as an older brother with much love. On my last birthday (18) I received from him: “ehhh happy birthday I think I have to stop saying little brother”. Never.
Those who know me -especially since my childhood- may be remembering an occasion with him, yesalways with the best humor.
How many jokes, how many fights and discussions, how many Play games in all the games and platforms there have been and how many shared passions, how many board and card games (how did you make us lose and lose?se trick tournament in Mendoza because you forgot to ask me that much!).
I collect various things. Most likely it started because he also did it with his tickets. At the beginning of 2020 I started collecting cans. When it all happened I went up to the apartment and saw in a corner a pile of separate cans, waiting for me. In spite of how bad it was to see the tragic scene, it made me smile to see that. Thanks.
Finally, what distresses me the most is knowing that my two little brothers (2 and 3 years old) are not going to be able to enjoy all those things with him. However, I also know that in such a short time did enough that they don’t forget.
After writing this, I assumed that due to the context I would have errors in the writing that I am not used to. I laugh thinking that there is nothing, but absolutely nothing, that would have bothered him less. He would laugh too.“
