Queridos Primos, Idalino, Lealda, Guilherme,
Lucy, Luzia, Gilberta e toda a Familia :


Regra geral, a dor acompanha a saudade-- a saudade de

pais, filhos, irmaos, sogros, tios, genros, primos, e bons

amigos ja' ao lado do nosso Grande Trio: Pai, Filho e Espirito

Santo.

A saudade e' ainda maior, ou mais profunda, quando a

uniao de familia e' bem apertada/chegada-- bem vivida,

bem humana....

Nada neste mundo nos toca no c o r a c,ao--na alma--

tao profundamente como o genuino Amor que

partilhamos-- o amor que vem das raizes da vida, amor

esse que se vem fomentando desde a Achada, na Cruz,

e na Rua do Rocha, No.20, Feteira Grande, Sao Miguel,

A c,o r e s.

Primeiro, foi a Vossa queridissima Mae, tia Maria

Resendes a deixar-vos ainda tao nova; depois, foi o

Vossp queridissimo irmao Adolfo. E, agora, seu

quridissimo Pai, de 99 anos (19 Dez 1918--9 Abril 2018),

que tanto trabalhou em Sao Miguel, e New Bedford

para sustentar o rico fruto do enlace matrimonial--seus

filhos.

E' coisa rarissima hoje em dia ver-se filhos tao organizados

e dedicados ao bem-estar dos pais--o qual se realizou com

a favor de ambos Mae e Pai.

Especialmente durante alturas de d o e n c,a-- 24 horas por

dia-- cada filho/filha sempre soube acompanhar os pais,

ate' a ultima hora da sua chamada divinal.

M A G N I'F I C O ! !

~ ~ ~ Que riqueza de sacrificio/de amor ~ ~ ~

Apresentando-vos as nossas mais sentidas condolencias nao

chega. Nao chega porque, agora, Vosso Pai se encontra

junto dos seus pais, esposa--Tia Maria--filho Adolfo, sogros,

irmaos, tios, primos amigos... E, deveras, so' pode encontrar-

se no seu lugarinho ao lado de Deus, e a gozar a felicidade

celestial que lhe foi garantida ja' ca' na Terra que so Deus e'

que soube criar.

Um grande a b r a c,o de solidariedade do fundo do c o r a c,o destes

sobrinhos/primos, com pedido especial a Deus, Pai, Jesus, Filho e o Espirito

Santo que Vos a b r a c e m e Vos protegem agora, e pelo decorrer da vida.



Adalino & Mary Cabral, e toda a Familia Cabral
