In less than a month we were already dating and when we had a month of relationship I was already introducing him to my family.
“With Carlos everything was so easy that I didn’t even think about it, I just let myself go because although we were totally unknown I felt that I had been with him all my life. We both felt that way. When we hadn’t even been 6 months, the cancer attacked again, also the pandemic and the truth is that they were a very hard few months since I physically couldn’t support him. Many people call me brave for not having run away and I think ‘have these people never known what it is to love?’ a pity Unfortunately, death has always been a very present thought in our relationship and it was clear to me that this was the only thing that was going to separate us. Unfortunately it had to be too soon but I couldn’t be more grateful that life put you in my path”, continued the young woman in her message on Instagram. “I remember that conversation on the sofa at my mother’s house before taking you to the emergency room at dawn, in which you promised me that you would fight until the end for me and you did. Until the last moment. Thank you for teaching me what love is, I hope others are lucky enough to have a fifth of what we had. Thank you for never judging me, for staying and trusting me. Thank you for not closing yourself off and letting me be part of your path. Just thank you. I’m going to miss you so much.”
On his TikTok profile, the family published a farewell video that Charlie recorded with the Bad Bunny song “A summer without you”, in which he dedicates his last message to his followers: “Goodbye sons of bitches, see you in the afterlife.”
