Family and friends attend the burning chapel of María Teresa Campos

The world of journalism is in mourning. The presenter María Teresa Campos died early Tuesday at the age of 82, leaving behind a great legacy on television in this country. The presenter was transferred last Sunday to the Fundación Jiménez Díaz Hospital in Madrid after suffering acute respiratory failure.

From that moment, relatives and friends close to the communicator did not hesitate to come to the clinic to say goodbye to one of the most important people in their lives. Her daughters, Terelu Campos and Carmen Borrego, have always been in the care of her mother and have tried to keep her state of health private until the last moment.

Shortly after her death, María Teresa Campos has been transferred to the La Paz funeral home, located in the town of Tres Cantos, in Madrid, where she is receiving the last goodbye from all those who want to come. There are already several well-known faces who have passed through the presenter's funeral chapel, but the first to arrive have been her daughters. Visibly affected, Terelu and Carmen have appeared together.

Belén Rodríguez was the first person who wanted to say something at the door of the funeral home. "It has been a very difficult few days," she has begun to recount. Among other things, she wanted to show her gratitude for the call she received from Terelu, despite being far from her. "If it is that in the end we are part of each other's lives. It has been a lifetime together," she added.

Shortly after, it was Alejandra Rubio, granddaughter of the presenter, who wanted to offer her first words after the death of her grandmother. "She was fantastic and the best grandmother in the world. We have been by her side at all times and we have all been able to say goodbye to her very well. For me, I am proud of the grandmother I have had," she expressed.

"Thank you all for the words you are having with her because she would have loved this and have this recognition after so many years of work," added the daughter of Terelu Campos.

"Teresa has been a teacher for many. I consider myself a Campos boy", assured José Manuel Parada before going in to say goodbye to his friend. "I think the public loves her. We have all grown up with Teresa," he added.

On the other hand, Ana Rosa Quintana also wanted to talk about María Teresa Campos, someone she was very fond of: "It is very sad. She is the first queen of the morning and the one who has opened the way for many others. One of the big ones. We've always been loyal to each other."

Gustavo, the presenter's driver, Azúcar Moreno, Luís Rollán or Father Ángel, have been other personalities who have not hesitated to attend the funeral chapel of María Teresa Campos. But, without a doubt, one of the people who has had the worst time upon her arrival at the funeral home has been Rocío Carrasco.

Wrapped up by Fidel Albiac, the daughter of Rocío Jurado, she has only been able to thank the press. "Only thank you very much to all", Carrasco has expressed with a fine thread of voice.
