Antonio’s family: I'm so sorry for your loss. I went through a similar situation and I was very helped by the hope that I found in the Bible in John 5:28, which says, "Do not amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I am sending you a link with more information on this hope.
I was 14 years old when I met Sr António and his family, and from that moment, they became the family I didn’t have in the US. He always treated me like an older daughter and I will forever treasure that. I am sad to see him go but I am happy to know he is with so many of his loved ones. RIP my dear, dear friend. I will cherish your memory forever. My deepest sincere condolences to your dear family. Love, your Paulinha!
I met Mr. Rosa when I first joined the PCU some 25 years or so ago. He was a proud member of the Society, his heritage and his family. He was an honest man, full of conviction, depth and very articulate. He was never shy about expressing his thoughts and when he spoke, he spoke with passion and from the heart. He will surely be missed by those that were fortunate enough to Know him.
To Mr. Rosa's entire family and friends, I express my heartfelt condolences, I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you the strength you need to deal with your loss.
