Farewell, Martha Anton

We wanted to talk to Martha and Manolo today.  Even though we keep updated with their news on Facebook, we hadn't spoken to them on the phone since December.  We called this morning, but couldn't reach them...we left a voice message.

It was only until this afternoon that we saw the posts on Facebook with the sad news that Martha had passed away today. 

It is such a shock.  We just saw Martha and Manolo in Buenos Aires last May. 

It feels like just yesterday when Martha and Manolo invited us to their house and Martha treated us with asado using her special secret recipe, and showed us a huge album filled with photos of all the cakes that she made for friends and loved ones in Tango.

It feels like just yesterday when we were at Sunderland together.

It feels like just yesterday when Martha and Manolo were in Toronto and we had the opportunity of a lifetime to learn from these great Maestros, who became like family to us.

Dear Martha:  You are our mama of Tango, the Queen of Canyengue... we will never forget what you have taught us, what you have shared with us, and we will always cherish your friendship and your love.  We love you and we miss you.
