We will never forget you. The same goes for Maria Grazia Cucinotta, ex-James Bond girl and friend of the deceased. "I still do not want to believe that you are gone... endless pain. Hello Christo, my friend, sweet soul, your fight for life was the fight of all those who love you," she wrote on Instagram.
