A moment of grief to share with you
Posted August 13th, 2013 - 11:05 am by from Playa del Carmen, Mexico (Permalink)
This is a very personal moment I would like to share with you.

Within the Couchsufing Community you meet many people.
Some you meet for a few minutes, with some you become friends.
I wish to share with you the grief of losing a friend who I was meeting and going out with almost every week since I met him 3 years ago when I moved to Prague.
His name was Danilo, from Brazil.
He was always up to something, partying and meeting and greeting people.
He was extremely generous and would never say no if you asked him a favor, a real Latino soul.
Just last week he had asked me what he had to do to become Couchsurfing ambassador.
I was with him in a club till 5am this Sunday morning... and 24 hours later I got the news he was found dead in his bed.
We don't know the exact cause yet, but it seems health related.
He will never be forgotten within the Prague CS community.
Never take any moment of your life for granted, never waste any moment with bad feelings... enjoy every second, life is too short to keep bitterness and resentment...
I live my life every day with these thoughts in my mind.
Today their meaning is deeper than ever.

May the departed soul rest in eternal peace and give patience to the family and friends behind. Extremely sorry for your awesome friend. What I will not give away just to say a few more words :(
