Muchas gracias y mil abrazos para ti.

Well, then. The story that I heard about her writing this just before she killed herself was obviously wrong, if you heard her singing it in Vina del Mar (how do you get the tilde in there?).

I really appreciate your doing this. I want to learn it in spanish, but it helps to know what I'm saying. I have a friend in Santa Fe who sings this and it has long been one of my favorites.

Best, WW
