He has said goodbye to the public life ,he has sent a letter to his friends ,and thanks to the internet we all are able to share it.
Dear MLF's friends,
I recommended you to read it because this text is really inspiring me,I'm impressed and captivated  by words to live by,"Life is so precious guys."
                             A genious says Goodbye
 
            If for an instant God forget that I am just a puppet,and he gave me one more piece of life
            I would take advantage of that time,the best I could.
            I would probably not say everything I think,but definitely think all I say.
            I would value things not for what they are worth,but for what they represent.
            I would sleep less and dream more for every minute we close our eyes ,we lose sixty seconds of light.
            I would continue where others have stepped and I would rise when others sleep.
            If God allowed me one more piece of life
            I would dress simpler ,would wallow in the sunlight,leaving uncovered not only my body but also my soul.
            I would prove to men how wrong they are to think that they stop falling in love as they get older,since they
            actually start getting older as soon as they stop falling in love.
            I would give wings to the children,but I would leave the child alone so that he could learn how to fly on his own.
            To the old,I would show them how death comes not with the aging process,but with forgetting.
            So many things I have learned from you,I have learned that everybody wants to live at the top of the mountain
            forgetting that is how we climb is all that matters.
            I have learned that when a newborn grabs his father's thumb,he takes a hold on him forever.
            I have learned that a man has the right to look down on somebody,only when he is helping him to get up.
            So many things I have learned from all of you.
            Always tell what you feel and do what you think.
            If I knew that today it would be the last time that I will see you,I will embrace you strongly to be the guardian of
            your soul.
            If I would know that these would be the last minutes that I will see you,
            I would say to you "I love you" and wouldn't assume that you would know it.
            There is always morning when life gives us another opportunity to make thingd good.
            Keep always close to your dear ones,and tell them how much you need them and love and take care of them
            Take time to say 'I'm sorry,forgive me,please,thank you" and all the nice and lovely words you know.
            Nobody would remember you if you keep your thoughts secret,force yourself to express them.
            Show your friends and dear ones how much you care about them.
 
            For you with much love,I hope and I wish that you'll remember me,Goodbye!
            Gabriel Garcia Marquez
