Chegou a hora da minha querida tia partir do nosso convívio... Ficará para sempre a recordação do seu brilhante sorriso sempre que me via, da alegria dos nossos reencontros e da imensa felicidade que era estarmos juntos... Que descansas em paz e guarda o teu sorriso mais resplandecente para quando nos voltarmos a encontrar... Um beijo cá de bem longe com o desejo de estar aí bem perto... Até sempre, até um dia!
