Norberto Bocchi: To Guido

Leggi in italiano »

Norberto e Guido

I will never see Guido Ferraro again? It seems impossible to believe this, and it is even more difficult to describe it.  

Guido was a very intelligent man, lively, always happy, talented in bridge, but mostly a great FRIEND, who left us too soon, really too soon…And this time I know it is not one of the many jokes he made in the 37 years we have been knowing each other.

 His personality and intuition were known in every corner of the world: every time I was with him, I thought of myself merely as a shadow, because of all he could get across.

 Our team, including Maria Teresa Lavazza, will feel an unbridgeable absence. Substituting Guido will be more than difficult: it will be impossible.

 Dear Cinzia, I understand the emptiness you feel, I do not know how to support you, because I cannot find a way to support myself: Guido will be missed by us all and I cannot think about how much you will miss him.

 A great man left us.

Guido, our life will be more grey, sadder, more boring, a lot emptier and a lot less fun without you, but I know well that you – with your philosophy of life – would tell us to remember you with a smile, and we will try to do that even though it will be difficult.

Guido: you are in heaven, elegantly mocking all saints, as you have always done, and after hugging your dear mum and dad you will ask a passer-by where you can find a golf course :-)))

 

With love

 

Norberto
