Gabriel García Márquez, one of the best writers to have ever lived has passed away. The Colombian author is also known as Gabo by his fans. Two of his most notable books are One Hundred years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. He won a Neustadt International Prize in 1972 and the Nobel Prize in 1982, both for literature. Márquez has always been proud of his roots, truly cared for his public, and his work reflected his vivid imagination. Indeed, it is a very sad day for us today.
