Ricardo

  1. 1. RICARDO When they told me that Ricardo have pancreatic cancer with metastasis into liver. I could not believe. Ricardo is brother of the Sister's Husband, but as well he was my boss for 2 years, when we built 5 years ago 2 building in Las Condes.   Ricardo is 45 years old he get married with Marilu a Colombian woman, they have 3 children they are between 2-8 years old. Ricardo is a civil engineer he has a specialty in build about big height.
  2. 2. <ul><li>First that I remember when they said to me it was a dream I dreamed 2 years ago with Ricardo, in this dream I saw him very sick of the hear and he died for this reason, I weak distressed and my first instinct was call Ricardo. I tell and persuade him that he practice exams. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>But I called to my sister, she said me you do not call, he will not listen he will think that you are crazy. </li></ul><ul><li>I didn't do something; it was easier and more convenient. </li></ul><ul><li>Now I think why we can't said what we think, feel, hope, want. It has been difficult for me. I know perhaps 2 years ago he was not sick, this is the more probable, and if was he sick? </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>I cannot forgive me, I never will know what would had happened, I only know what had happened. I can not change the past, but I can act differently so that the future, the past will be different. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Now Ricardo is undergoing medical treatment very aggressive with chemotherapy against the cancer, but his life expectancy is 10 % above 5 years. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>As well I have profound impact on death of Randy Pausch, he died of the same cancer of Ricardo, I had seen his story it is unbelievable he was professional much thing, but his life after of the cancer is amazing. He was teacher of a course de virtual world for 10 years and paradoxically his last lesson was about real life. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Creator of Alice Software Project, Co-founder of CMU's Entertainment Technology Center, as well he said special speeches about life, e.g. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  5. 5. In May 2008, Pausch was listed by Time as one of the World's Top-100 Most Influential People. His video has been seen for millions of person through YouTube.
  6. 6. I now hope that Ricardo has the power to confront it. I do not know if the life or the death, I think both are very difficult. I only hope that his body, brain and spirit do not suffer.
