Julio was a dear one.  When his wife Florencia called me three weeks ago, I went to their home to give massages to both of them.  I shaved Julio’s beard last Friday afternoon.  Helping them in any way I could was good therapy for me, now that I am no longer taking care of Alito.  I discovered on Friday that they had never seen the video I made ten years ago of Julio.  I was going to bring my notebook along tomorrow to show it to him.

I met Rulo for the first time at the funeral.  I never danced with him in the milongas and didn’t know he used to go to Lo de Celia.
