“I am dying in San Pedro surrounded by peach trees in bloom and orange trees that wait their turn to drop their petals and flood us all with perfume,” begins the writing left by the historic Channel 13 host.

“I am in the middle of the field, walking with my dogs, who have been aware for days what is going to happen. I am looking at the river, listening to the bells that my grandparents heard. I am about to see the pigeons fly that will cover the sky like all the afternoons. Soon they will take me with them to show me the way,” he added.

And he concluded: “I am dying in San Pedro at the age of 80, where I always wanted to die, together with the woman I love, embracing my family. What more can I ask for? I am dying in peace with the satisfaction of having fulfilled my duty.” . After the reading, his relatives opened two baskets containing pigeons and let them fly into the air.
