Javier Cabrera Rodriguez
happy be live and stay here, even can not ride my bikes, I trust in the future
We are sad to report the death of a WarmShowers member, a cyclist from Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. His was the only pin on the WarmShowers map for all of the Canary Islands. We contacted him in November 2010 when we were cycling in Morocco, a month before we were planning to continue our bicycle trip in the Canary Islands. He responded very quickly, with many generous offers to help us during our trip. However, he also mentioned that he could no longer ride his bicycle due to his cancer. Within two weeks, even before we left Morocco, his sister contacted us to tell us that her brother Javier had died. She said that when he was in the hospital, he had asked her to let us know. Since the time we first contacted him, he updated his profile to include the quote above. He must have written that shortly before his death. Though we never met him, we would like to honour him with this post and to invite anyone who has met him to write something more.
