“It was late in the night when I received a call from a friend. I decided not to answer, but the call came in several times, so I answered. When I picked, my friend broke the news to me. I took it as a dream because it was weird news. In my doubt, I received another call from my younger brother confirming my friend’s report.




“I told a friend that seeing my father this way is a bad omen. Here we are with this news, it is very unfortunate and unexpected.”
