My prayers are with them
Word comes a good friend may have been on the Air France flight to Paris from Rio. My heart is sad, I hope for God to send a miracle….
UPDATE: Hear from my Brazilian contacts, that indeed Maestro Silvio Barbato was on the flight and is most likely with God even as I write this.
God rest him and keep his family safe and comforted in this terrible moment of pain and loss. Comfort and solace to all concerned.
