Cesareo Pelaez RIP

I don't even know how to write this, but my dear friend Cesareo Pelaez has passed away. He was the founder and creator of the Le Grand David Magic Show in Beverly MA, he was also a former college professor. Actually Cesareo was many things to many people. To me, he was a mentor and dear friend.
I can't find the words to describe the sadness I feel today.

I was reflecting on this today and how much Cesareo changed my life. He was the one who encouraged me to write, which led me to write a couple books and then a magazine column and of course this blog and others. He also was instrumental in encouraging my artwork and it's continuation. And as far as my magical performances his contributions and suggestions were countless. He was such a wonderful person and I know he had a similar affect on every person he encountered. I will write more later.
