Hoje é um muito triste realmente, porque hoje perdemos uma pessoa maravilhosa, o meu irmao VENTURA, mas temos de perceber que mesmo que ele não está mais com a gente neste mundo, ele estava sofrendo muito, no entanto, ele está agora rodeado por anjos no céu e descansa em paz. Portanto, este deve ser o nosso maior conforto, apesar da dor que sentimos. Seu espírito estará sempre conosco em nossos corações... descansa em paz eternamente querido irmao Ventura.
Beijos grandes para Emilia, Aldina e familia, Mario e familia desde Uruguay Beatriz, Jose e Irene Tavares Direitinho

   My pai,my pop,my father

You may have thought I didn’t see,
Or that I hadn’t heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we’d grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It’s written on my heart.
Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be
The (man) I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
I’ve grown up with your values,
And I’m very glad I did;
So here’s to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful son
