Mexico City, Apr 18 (EFE).- Mercedes Barcha is "full of sadness" for the death of husband Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a family friend said Friday as he was leaving the Mexico City home of the late Nobel laureate.
"She's fine, constantly answering the telephone, full of sadness but calm," journalist Jacobo Zabludovsky said.
Zabludovsky made his statement after stepping out of the author's home, where "Gabo" died Thursday at the age of 87.
"This is an occasion for national mourning," Zabludovsky said. "For me he was the most important writer in the world at that time."
