A Great Argentina Friend Dies Much Too Early

My dear friends we are all so happy to see Elena safely back from her trip to Argentina. She got to spend time with family and friends and experience some new adventures in Patagonia. She also brought back some sad news. Our dear friend and Catholic priest Leonardo Belderrain had suffered a heart attack in 2014 and passed away. He was only 58 years of age. Leonardo was a man full of fun and full of life. He was charming and original. He will be missed. His death sends a message that each day that we have on this earth is a gift. We could be taken at any time.

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
