— Máximo Pradera Valdés has died without completing his lengthy (30
years) sentence. According to the account I heard, he unexpectedly
suffered a massive heart attack while visiting with his family, enjoying
their pass granted by the prison authorities.

A few months ago Máximo sent me a message: “Tell him that I’m his
friend.” I responded, “Vice versa and take care.”

I know that he smoked too much. At least Máximo is now free. It’s a
shame that he couldn’t see his country free from the hands of the
Castros, whom he hated with all the strength of his soul.

Rest in peace, dear Máximo.
