My deepest condolences to my Tio Eduardo and the biggest hug for my sweet cousins. Our grandparents are such a blessing to us, they are the glue that holds the family together and the pain of losing them is something I don’t wish on anyone. Know that she is in peace with God and is smiling down on all of you.

Estamos ambos tristes neste últimos dias pelo falecimento da nossa querida Tia Regina. Ela e o Tio sempre foram um grande exemplo na nossa vida, e a gente continua a usar os seus exemplos na educação dos nossos filhos. Agora a Tia já partiu para a próxima fase da sua vida a estar com Deus e todos anjos e santos no alto Céu. Espero que um dia estaremos todos juntos outra vez aonde nem virus, nem doença, nem fome e nem distancia nos pode afastar. Mandamos as nossas condolências para o Tio e todos os primos, um grande abraço com todo o nosso amor.
