Senhora Helena, It was pleasure to have meet you. I always enjoyed the talks we had. I will treasure that forever. Your smile lit up the room, your energy was contagious and your love for your daughter, son in law and beautiful grand boys was your world. May your soul rest Senhora Helena.
God bless, Cassie 🙏
