A year ago we were lighting the beautiful tree and it seems like it went like water through our hands. I want to say to all those who were at last year’s tree lighting and who lost a loved one that: this year’s lighting means remembering that person we lost and who was not enough for us this year and for all of us who can pass by the entire year that it means to remember, because there is nothing better than family, close friends and all those people we love very much. December is a very beautiful month, because, although we do not want it between us, it is a feeling of friendship, a feeling of making peace with those who want to do it, but we do not dare to ask for forgiveness,” said Mauricio Trejo.

Let them know that every year I did it with great affection for my beloved San Miguel, for all of you, and that it was a pleasure to have served as municipal president. I am the luckiest man, without a doubt, in this country.”
