At the moment I’m taking care of the formalities for the [funeral] ceremony that will take place.”
He also stated: “We are shocked, it came as a surprise. I thank everybody who is worried about us. At the moment we’re trying to assimilate. I still can’t believe it, it’s very difficult to assimilate. At the moment the family is united, we support each other. We will have a very intimate ceremony officiated by a catholic priest that we estimate. We are very shocked, just on the weekend we celebrated the graduation of my niece Sofía."
