Alberto Paz The Love Of My Life

It is with great sadness that I tell you that the love of my life Alberto passed away yesterday in New Orleans. It was sudden. He was teaching a tango lesson in a dance studio. I thank you all for the love and respect you have shown Alberto for these many past years. I hate to use a blog like this, but you have all been a big part of our lives and I thought you would like to know. I will let you all know the arrangements as they evolve. Pray for us. xo xo

  34. While I have commented earlier, I failed to mention how often Alberto was featured in your blog Valorie especially when you were renovating your kitchen. He always made everything you wanted in your home possible with his engineering skill. I also remember his pride in every design job you published for clients. He was your greatest cheerleader, your lover and best friend. Who could ask for more. My heartfelt sympathy to you and your entire family.

  44. So sorry to read of Alberto's passing, Valorie. You are bereft of a partner in so many meanings of that word. There is no doubt that you are a strong woman who will go forward in your life accompanied by his spirit. Wishing you peace and grace as you grieve. - Minnie

  50. My sincerest sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with you, Valorie. My heart breaks for you at this most sad and difficult time, but as I read your words detailing lunches, good wine and loving times together with your Alberto my heart was also filled with the intent of your sharing words- the joy of reading a story of deep love and a true partnership. My thoughts are with you, Valorie.

  51. Valorie -- I'm so sorry for your loss. The magic that the two of you had permeated your posts, so we know how his loss will rock you. Lean on us as needed.

  52. Valorie, This cannot be so. You must be telling yourself that too. Alberto died doing what he dearly loved, dancing. If only you had been in his arms; but most importantly, you were and are in his heart. Always. Sending you peaceful, calming energy these next weeks and months. Mari (whom met you a few weeks ago in the Whole Foods parking garage.) Bessings to you.

  54. I'm so sorry for your loss. That doesn't even seem like an appropriate way to express how sad I am for you even though we've never met. You've been in my prayers though. I hope you can find a moment of peace as you go through this.

  55. I am so sorry for your loss, dear Valorie. I have known you as a couple only through a few photos of course -- but each one had the power to fill my heart with joy. Such a beautiful mutual love. May the memory of your wonderful Alberto bring you much, much strength, and peace. Anne in France

  56. Oh Valerie, I am so sorry ! I have been so wrapped up in my own grief, I have paid little attention to anything else. I know how you are feeling and I know Time is what heals, memories are painfully comforting and whatever it takes to make you less sad, do it, say it , get through it.
    I wish there something that makes this terrible sadness better but time seems to be the only thing that will work. Much love to you. C

  59. Dear Valorie, I am so sorry to hear of your wonderful husbands passing. I pray that all your memories of your life together are as colorful as the day you shared them. I watched your house tour video a hundred times, feeling like I got to know you both. I am saddened for your loss. The music and the love of making a house your home really shines through. Thankfully Alberto was doing what he loved and that he was blessed with a loving wife. Prayers for you and your family... Dawn
