Tia, you were the sweetest and most generous person I ever met. You worked so hard to bring us to the U.S. and always made sure we felt like your “kids” after your sister passed way, while we were so young. I’m sure you’re in heaven with tio telling my mother and father how proud you were of your “kids”. I will forever miss your smile and your wisdom. Tu és o meu anjo!

Tia, your presence will truly be missed in our family. I know I can speak for so many of us who loved you, you took a piece of our hearts with you when you left us on Tuesday. I can only find comfort in all the many great memories I have of you and that I know you and Tio have been reunited after just a short time apart. You have done so much for the entire Gonçalves family and we are forever grateful to you and Tio for that. May you rest in peace...

Tony, Terry & Maria Tia Sara You laid there in that hospital bed, you tried so hard to hold on. God was calling you home. He needed another angel to help pour out the rain. Tears have fallen, hearts where shattered, but it was time for you to fly home. Your loved ones came to say their last goodbyes, to tell you they loved you, and that you will be forever missed. As your heartbeat stopped, and your eyes slowly closed, God took another angel home. Together with my parents Oliveira
