My deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies to my teacher and dear friend Luisa Ferreira for her loss of her beloved mother Mrs.Mariana Ferreira! Though, I did not meet her in person, yet her character is definitely embodied in my friend Luisa. What a good legacy to leave behind such good person, who is dedicated to her students and job. I have never met such a lovely and friendly teacher as my teacher and friend Luisa.
Please know I am here for you in this difficult time.

Mama Mariana Ferreira was a joy-filled woman who was large-heated in kindness and generosity. She was prayerful, religious, and committed to her Catholic Christian faith. She was loyal in her unconditional love to family and friends. I will miss her dearly. May God grant you, eternal rest Mama Mariana Ferreira.
