Hopefully the day that he (El Sol de Mexico) wishes to recover the lost time, it won’t be too late.

I never talk bad about their father, but as time passes by and he doesn’t look for them, they don’t see him as a father,”

“It is a very beautiful story; I would like a book of memories. First of all, my children will know it, they already know it”
