Emilio, we can all now comprehend why you lived life so large. Large in your generosity. Large in your caring. Infinite in your love. We assure you, Emilio, with all our hearts, we knew it then, and, with the most deepest regret, we know it even more now. You entertained us with your electrifying exuberance. It exploded like champagne which you doused upon us every day of our lives. You taught us to live zealously and to love each other. You had spectacular passion; sports, dirt-biking, food, wine, your cherished friends, your profession, but most of all, your love for everyone you touched. You lived life like you knew you had to accomplish everything in a shorter period of time. Monotony was your enemy, whom you never once faced.
So, we will dry our eyes and remember you, not as you are now, but as you used to be. Because by remembering you and looking upon you with love and a smile, you will live your life in the hearts of all of us.
