News today by his son, that the first President of the new democratic Spain is very ill, maybe 48 hrs more. So sad;this is a great one of Spain.

thanks to him we are still enjoying a better Spain away from dictators. I lived both and I say ,Thank you Mr Suarez. I will always remember you.

I agree, Pedmar. Well worth a look are the photos in today's El Pais; they are a treasure trove of history.

Sadly, you were correct pedmar. He sadly passed away today, 23rd March 2014 at 1503 local time.
I think even in his death he will have an effect. It will bring the history of Spain (pre and post Franco) to the eyes and ears of many, including the young folks of Spain.

Yes, I agree with you on this pedmar. I was not able to see the whole service but my impression was that it would have been very moving to those who had lived through the civil war and the transition.
