Firstly we’d like to thank our Heavenly Father for blessing us with Erena, a beautiful God-fearing woman that loved the Lord with all her heart.
Vozinha you were such a blessing to so many people around you with your love, kindness and giving heart. We’ll cherish the memories we had with you in South Africa 🇿🇦 forever, one that stands out for us is all the Café lattes and all our dogs sitting around you.
It’s sad for the ones that stay behind and some to comprehend why you’re gone but we rejoice as we know you’re pain-free and you’re with Jesus. R.I.P. Vozinha ❤️ ... gone but not forgotten... til we meet again 🙏🏻 With much love Sandra, Kyla and Victor
