Tio Jose Henrique was such a great guy funny and a great heart ❤️ He sure loved his family and always loved seeing the kids. We remember his visits to Canada 🇨🇦 and how he liked playing a lottery ticket 🎫 or two, he should have won....he deserved to win. Rest In Peace we love you and will never forget you.

My deepest condolences to Sra. Anna and Sandra. Senhor Henrique was such a kind, and friendly person. Always joking around and with his big smile. I was sad to hear of his passing. May he rest in peace. May god give you both the strength to help you thru this difficult time.

These unprecedented circumstances make your passing that much harder to bear. The fact that we can't be there makes this even more difficult to deal with. I will cherish the fond memories of our visits and I'm glad my children and I had the chance to know you. I know when we met you were not the same man you once were that I had heard all the stories about, but in our brief time together I caught glimpses of that man making his was to the surface. You will always be loved and sorely missed. My deepest condolences to Tia Ana and Sandra. May you rest in peace. With much love: The Arruda family
