I was really saddened by this news, which struck me in my body with my mind.
I had considered Lelio Marcos as a good friend and brother, because in 2004, at the 12th Pan-American Championships held in Cap-Haitian, I was a good relation with him.
In 2007, at the 14th Pan-American Championships held in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I had great difficulty participating in this championship, that Jesus had used Lélio Marco to take action for me and, finally, I received the visa with the ticket to participate, and it was a great opportunity for me. I play in this game in Haiti for many years, but I would never have found a chance to participate in international tournaments, it is because of the Haitian draught Federation of Auditors that caused all these abuses.
Thank you Jesus first, also to my dear friend Lélio Marcos, and if today I am recognized in the world checkerboard and I am 2 times champions of Americas 2007 in 2009 also Grand-Master International without forgetting other titles, international experiences that I have done, all thanks to my dear friend Marco.
You have always encouraged these two 100 and 64 International Games.
You are a great man that we have never forgotten, his work is not finished, but he will continue for more evolution. In the future, it will have a big change in both games.
Condolence to his family, to his friends.
I appreciate and thank my friends Raul Alias, Hensley Rondei.
I will never forget you, I will love you my dear friend Lélio Marcos, and you will always remain in my thoughts.
That his soul rests in peace!
