I’m sad to announce you that my husband Eduardo tragically was killed last Saturday in a car crash.
I know how important this forum, as he called it, was to him. And I just wanted to say good-by in his name.
He was a true music lover, but now his chair in front of his speakers is empty, waiting for him in vain.
That’s all. I can’t say anymore.
A la familia y Sra esposa de Eduardo...
Les doy mi mas sentido pesame por la perdida de Eduardo. Que Dios lo ampare en su gloria, ese es mi deseo. Espero tambien que Dios les de fuerza a todos ustedes para pasar estos momentos tan dificiles.
Please accept my sincere condoleances.
Glad to know he liked this place.
My father passed away last month. Reading the responses below brought back grief once more. But as someone said, there will be JOY again. May you find comfort soon. Eduardo is singing with the angels now.
Best wishes to you and your family for better days ahead.
this is a tragedy for all of us, missing a true friend
I am sorry to hear of your loss. Best wishes for you and your family in these difficult times.
Eduardo will be missed by all he touched.When that day comes that we finally get to meet, I plan to share some good music together over a challenging game of chess.
My deepest condolences.

I searched through Eduardo's posts and selected the following to repost in remembrance of him...

AUDIOPHILE ANXIETY (DRAMATIZATION) -
---BEGIN QUOTED TEXT---
Our hobby is a cruel one, sometimes even devilish. The search for better sound is endless and, if done carelessly, can bring a lot of pain and suffering to our lives.
We decide to upgrade. We seek, read and ask. Finally we decide. Are we happy? Scarcely. The problem is we keep seeking, reading and asking, until that horrible thing happens: somewhere we find a negative comment about our just-purchased equipment.
We try to calm ourselves. Not everybody has to like everything, we repeat in our most convincing voice, but the devil keeps commanding attention. Even if we like our new equipment, each month we anxiously search our favorite audio magazine/forum looking for new comments “just in case”.
The fear of technology obsolescence haunts us constantly.
Then we read someone saying: “Forget about the sound, concentrate on the music”. Ha! Good joke my friend, I bet you do just that.
Look at your system. Don’t you think that your once great amp is no longer a good match for your great new speakers? Of course it’s not. Start saving. But, wait, now that you have spend all that money, are you going to let that lousy preamp ruin everything?
Yet, I admit it, this damned hobby brings joy to my life in a way few things can (maybe books and chess).
So my friends, maybe we should take a sabbatical. One full year without TAS, Stereophile and Asylums. How’s that? Will that kill the devil?

"Be excellent." I'll take your words to heart Eduardo.
Well miss you.
I will play the Rutter Requiem in his honor tonight.
Words seem pretty inadequate at a time like this, but I hope you will find just a little bit of comfort in knowing how much we all share in your sorrow. I will say a prayer for both of you.
Eduardo will be missed, that's for sure.
May God bless you and your family.
Peace be with you,
We are all deeply saddened to hear of this loss. May God be with you and your family.
He will be missed by us all.
Sometimes God allows circumstances out of our control which we can't understand. Hopefully, something positive will be gained by someone experiencing Eduardo's passing. We're very sorry to hear of this tradegy, but thank you for sharing with this community to which he belonged.
Best regards and God bless you,
May he rest in peace.
If someone would post it, I would be interested in suggesting we listen to it and honor/reflect on Edwardo, his interests and how precious time is.
And to you his wife, there are no words that can do anything to help you at this time. Just know he was respected in his hobby.
You have my deepest sympathies in your time of loss. Eduardo was both a gentleman and a music lover and we shall all miss him.
...we are here for you if you need anything. i am sure forum members could pool resources to help out. i am confident that everyone here feels the same.
i am fairly new here and did not have an opportunity to get to know Eduardo. i am however, going to use the search engine and find his posts to see what i have missed!
might i suggest you fill the empty chair - i am sure he would want that.
God be with you
...what a sad moment for all of us. Please accept our condolences and may God protect you and his soul. Eduardo was an audiophile...now he is sitting with the angels...
My prayers are with you and yours.
May the Lord bless you and your family!
Peace, Jim P
More than a mere audiophile, Eduardo was a good man. Indeed, a true gentleman. I wish you comfort at this most difficult of times.
...si lo hay me lo imagino lleno de musica maravillosa, asi
que los audiofilos perseguimos el cielo en la tierra...
un afectuoso saludo en estos momentos de dolor
No words come to me when I need them the most.
If that means anything, I'm sure Euduardo would be proud of you for making this post. Please, don't let the music die in your home.
I am deeply saddened. Please accept condolences from my family.
I wish you all the strenght, power and courage you will need in trying to get over this loss. My condoleances....
The world and the asylum will be a less warmer place without him. But we know full well that there is the assurance even in the midst of sorrow that he will still be enjoying his beloved music in the good company of the Lord.
My condolences to you and your family , I was always impressed by him , a scholar and a gentleman.
Thanks for letting us know , I'm sure he would have approved of the post.

"The greatest thing about smacking your head against the wall is the feeling you get when you stop."
Eduardo's unexpected departure sadens everyone here. May he rest in peace and his memory live long in our hearts and minds.
a un gran ser humano. Aunque por un corto tiempo alguno de nosotros conocimos por este medio a Eduardo; pudimos constatar por sus "posting" su gran calidad como ser humano. Dios lo tenga en la gloria. Nuestro mas sentido pesame desde Puerto Rico.
El poste de Eduardo será faltado seguramente. Deseo ciertamente para su familia tener el dios de la potencia doy en ocuparse de una tan enorme pérdida. Pasé recientemente sus postes y faltaré profundamente su widom y humor. El dios de mayo bendice a la familia.
May our prayers be with all of you and give you strength. The music is playing more beautifully than ever from his perch high above all of us. God bless.
He will be missed by all...and Is in my prayers...
So sorry for the loss.......
I am sorry to hear of your loss.
I have no doubt that he was as good a husband as he was a man of honor and dignity at these forums.
He will be sorely missed.

On now, "Remembrance" by Giulio Regondi(1822-1872)
Lamento mucho su perdida. Eduardo sera recordado siempre por la comunidad audiofilia.
I'm sorry for your loss. Eduardo will always be remembered by the audiophile community.
I can't begin to imagine the pain that is the present for you and those close to Eduardo. I know he will be missed here at the Asylum, and elsewhere as well. But, please know that time does heal all wounds, eventually, and that Eduardo lives on in the hearts and minds of those who loved him.
Perhaps this can be a time for we fellow inmates to not only express our sympathies for this terrible loss, but also to realize how precious and fleeting life really is, and instead of spending so much time worrying about the next upgrade or tweak, to share the "sweet spot" with someone we love and just listen.
Fellow members have expressed my sentiments more than I can say.
We wish you God's rest and peace during this time of grief and in the coming times.
May God Bless.
He was a positive force at the Asylum and will be deeply missed.
Maybe we should all play our systems just a bit louder for Eduardo, and for his wife....no words to express how sorry I am for your loss. bob
. . . may He welcome Eduardo to a better place where you may re-join him again. Eduardo will be greatly missed by all!
I hope you may find peace in knowing that we are thinking about you, and loss.
That was very considerate of you. The prayers and kind wishes of our small but worldwide community are with you and your family. Thank you for giving us the chance to come together in our thoughts for him and for you.
Please feel welcome to contact me or any of us if we can help in any way. We are people who feel deeply, otherwise we wouldn't love music.
my prayers are with you and your family
My thoughts will be with you and your family.
I want to especially thank you for sharing this news with us during such a difficult time. Your's is truly a great heart that would remember us in your time of pain.
I'm raising a glass in Eduardo's memory as I send this message.
My father was killed in an auto accident on April 26, 1997. He was late in coming home from work and we had just filed a missing persons report with the Sheriff's Office when we got a phone call from the hospital. The doctor did not want us to see the body, or give us many details. The next day, when we saw the condition of his vehicle, we knew that he must have suffered greatly in dying. The police report we obtained months later indicated that he was not dead at the scene, but died when they removed him from the vehicle. My family and three other parties sued the person/company responsible for the accident and that stretched into a long, hard legal battle that was settled two years later. I honestly don't know how my mother had the strength to endure all of those months of inquiry, deposition, and testimony.
The thing that hurt me the most was not having the opportunity to say goodbye to him, to say all of the things I wanted him to know. And when they are taken suddenly, there is no sense of closure. Time helps, but the missed opportunity is forever. For the sake of all your friends and relatives, say what you want and need to say to each other now, while you are all together to honor his passing. The opportunity may never come around again.
Please feel free to write to me if you need someone to talk to.
My father also died suddenly, leaving no sense of closure.
The circumstances were different, but that doesnt matter anyway.
I found your words quite insightful.
To a place where there is no distortion, and nothing is underpowered - for the music is part of you. Save me a seat.
His spitit,His soul lives on
My prayers are with you and your family. I hope your well during this time of loss. Please take care, His chair is empty but his spirit is and always will be with you... Regards, Harry
I am very sorry for your loss. Eduardo has left a wealth of kind words in the archives here at AudioAsylum and they can be read by selecting "Search" and typing "Eduardo" in the text window.
Again, my condolences. Dave
Thank you letting us know and share your grief. Our thoughts are with you.
Sorry to hear about your loss and ours. I wish you and your family the best during this difficult time.
Eduardo will be solely missed. This is a terrible loss for us, but that's nothing compared to the loss that you and your family have suffered. Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that my prayers with be with you.
God bless you and yours,
Deepest sympathies from my family to yours. I lost my mom the Christmas before last and someone told me something that helped me get through each day. 'It will only get better'
God Bless, our thoughts are with you.
You have my deepest sympathy at your loss (and ours), may
God strengthen you through this time of pain.
Me ha tomado unos cuantos minutos poder intentar escribirle algo que a la vez la consuele y fuese realista. Finalmente, solo puedo decirle que apreciaba a Eduardo tanto como muchos aquí, quienes lo extrañaremos y consideraremos que es una pérdida muy grande, también porque se trataba de una persona muy valiosa.
Mi más sincero pésame.
Please accept my condolences.
my Dear Grieving Lady,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your Husband. I sincerely hope that you shared his love of music and will continue to listen for the both of you. I think He may have wanted others to hear the beauty, as I am sure he did. May God Bless.
Eduardo amaba el Audio Asilo y atraves de sus comentarios brindaba ayuda a muchos de sus compañeros audiofilos y entusiastas. Se que son momentos dificiles para usted y su familia y de parte de todos los amigos que hizo a traves de estas correspondencias, le queremos expresar nuestro mas sentido pesar y esperamos que el Señor Todopoderoso le brinde la fuerza y firmesa para continuar el camino de la vida.
Gracias por informarnos y que Dios la colme de bendiciones.
De Puerto Rico, Jose y familia.
