My name is Fernando. I am your uncle, your father’s brother.

You may remember me. We share some time when you were very young.

For motives unknown to me, and that are beyond the reason of this communication, we lost contact about twenty years ago.

Today, still under the deep emotion of losing my mother, your grandmother, who passed away a few days ago, I realize the enormous value of time lost and I believe that the strength of family ties can help overcome meaningless differences and help us rebuild.

This is the reason why I am attempting to contact you today; to give us the chance to reconnect with you and to give you the chance to meet the other half of your family; your uncles, a grandfather, cousins, a niece, and a nephew.

Your grandmother never lost hope that one day she would be allowed the opportunity to know you and to build a relation with you. Today is too late for her. I do not want to make the same mistake. I want to have that chance, or at least to offer it to you.

If you find value in this attempt, you can contact me in any way you feel better.

Thanks for reading.

Con Gabriela jugamos mucho. David era el mejor y mas querido amigo de mi hijo Mauro. Compartimos un par de años. A Michael solo lo vi nacer. Muy poquito tiempo despues mi hermano Pablo decidio alejarse de su familia.

Todavia tratando de adivinar los motivos, veinte años mas tarde, intento acercarme a mis sobrinos. Se lo debo a Mama, quien un par de veces me lo pidio, ya que ella nunca se animo. En sus palabras, “No quiero hacerle lio a Pablo.”

Hoy me toca a mi intentarlo.

Con toda buena intencion, mande esta carta a Gaby, entregada personalmente por un amigo, y a David y Michael, a traves de facebook.

Fue en Abril 30 2013. Veremos.
