Sincere condolences to Francisco and all the family. I met Matilde a few years ago when she was a psychologist with WCB. Her kindness, charisma, humour worked wonders on my path to well-bring. I loved her. Several times after that, she invited me for tea at their condo where Francisco and she were the most elegant hosts. She always spoke so fondly of her family, and she had the daintiest most well groomed hands I’ve ever seen, so very pretty she was, inside and out. She will be missed. I will be ever grateful for having known the wonderful Matilde.
