Mr.&Mrs, Luizinho were my neighbors. I could not have been more lucky. Amazing people that welcomed us as family. My children looked at them as grandparents and they were treated as such. They picked grapes,played cards and made desserts together. While she was inside singing and playing with my daughter,her husband met me at the fence to share with me how to keep my yard lol. I could go on. The feeling and greatfullness I am sharing is of a woman who I am very thankful for to have known as well as truely saddened to hear of her loss. Her kindness is not gone and you will know this if you know any of the family who are as kind and caring as she was. Peace & strength to you all!

My Deepest Sympathy to all Izabel’s family. I’m sorry for all your heartaches, and wish I could ease your grief. I will never forget how Izabel would make me laugh with the comical things she’d say to me, or how she liked to dress so pretty with matching jewelry. Izabel was a beautiful and classy lady. It was an honor to know her.
Love,
Charleen Santos

Hello tia. What a wonderfull journey you had...
Thank you for your kindness and joy.
I still remember your smile in your kitchen and in your garden in that summer of 1990 watching us playing: me, Steven and Melissa, just kids. I still remember your visits to Madeira Island… and for last, our visit to your home in the summer around 2005/2006 and that "good bye" by the window with tio António that I will never forget (and still I dont know why).
Thank you for all the memories and the beautiful family that represents today the sum of your loving past. Good bye. Love you.
