“He was very romantic with me. When we were young he always sang these songs that involved my name, which is Miriam. After the Sandinistas came they took all his money and belongings. It was such a big tragedy for him that he developed a terrible drinking problem. He didn’t live much longer after that. I have been a widow for over twenty-two years and I never fell in love again, he’s the only one for me.”
