Default Requiem for a neighbor

Hi guys.

Just before starting the quarantine, my house´s right neighbor asked me to repair three kitchen wall cabinets that have some damaged doors. The damage was so extensive that I made three new cabinets.

With quarantine scarcity of everything became worst. The government imposed a weird work schedule for businesses others than foods and medicines. The repair process was longer than expected. Meanwhile, aggressive cancer attacked my neighbor and he passed away in less than 15 days.

This weekend, after family mourning I finished the project.
RIP Aurelio.

Too bad that your neighbour didn't see the cabinets. I had that disease take a neighbour while I was on a trip to Europe.
