Diego Armando Maradona died at the age of 60 after suffering a decompensation at his home on Wednesday, November 25, 2020.
Dalma Maradona, the eldest daughter of Diego’s marriage to Claudia Villafañe, wrote a moving letter to her father on her account Instagram where he admitted that he is “destroyed”, but assured that he will get ahead, with the illusion that one day he will meet his father again.
Here is the complete letter from Dalma:
I was always very afraid of my death, but today I no longer …
Because I know that this is going to be the moment that I will see you again and hug you again! I already miss you pa! I will endure here, without that part of my heart that you took with you yesterday!
As you always asked me, I am going to take care of the jabru and your favorite pompom BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS GIVE ME IMPOSSIBLE RESPONSIBILITIES SINCE I HAVE USE FOR RIGHT! I am going to love and defend you all my life because I thank you for the shared life! I am destroyed but I will get ahead! Wait for me there.
We are going to see each other, while I am practicing AND HOW IS HE so that when I see you we will sing it again together shouting … Well … You are actually singing beautiful and I screaming!
I love you dad! I will love and defend you all my life! And if your granddaughter wants to call you by video call like they did, I’m going to die inside, but rest assured that I’m going to tell her exactly who you were, who you are and who you are going to be forever! Maybe he already loves you.
Because you had that … It didn’t take much to love you … I put together my pieces and I can’t imagine how my life will be without you … I CAN’T … But here I am with the best husband in the world and a daughter that will force me to get ahead!
Life is a little while so see you soon! I am bringing you daisies to decorate your gamer socks and please look at me again with that love you see in the photo!
I love you forever!
