Loles Salvador, a woman dear to my family, passes away

Kind, generous smile, very present in our family as a person and professionally. I had the opportunity to share a table for the first time on January 24, 1994. That night my wife Begoña went into labor. The next day, a bouquet of flowers bore her name. Always close, Loles Salvador. D.E.P.
This is my song for her.
