We have lost a rare and beautiful person. To Francisco, my friend, my love to you on your new journey. It has been my privilege and my joy to have gotten to know you and to work with you. Thanks to James Downs for introducing us and thanks to Devon, my son, and Kiirsti, my daughter, for the good work we did on your book project. And thanks to Javier, blessings to you.
Francisco is one of those special people, special poets, who in his life and in his poetry he showed us the best a person can be. In his poetry you see the man and in the man you see his poetry, they are the same. As James said to me tonight, "he is now the Borderless Butterfly flying over us all."
