I can’t believe it, I’m shocked by the pain. The good times we lived together come back to mind, which I will always keep in my deep dear friend “he wrote on Instagram.
«I have just learned of the disappearance of my friend Tonino. How sorry I am », wrote Pupo on Facebook. «His warm and melodious voice will remain forever in my mind and in my heart. Eternity, open your arms wide, he is now there, beside the sleeping happiness“.
