My heart will think of you and Menino Daddy always and am glad you are at peace and tranquillity together in heaven watching over all of us and guiding us until we all meet again in heaven on day. You led an amazing, full life with much love courage and strength right until your last breath.

    I will always hold close to my heart the rosary that we prayed together on the Sunday before you went into hospital and you told me how much you really enjoyed it and to pray with other elderly people because it made you so happy. I love how you knew every word and always told me about your favourite saints. To our final rosary together just before you peacefully passed away. Thank you for sharing your faith with me. You inspire me with your faith and trust in God. Thank you for always encouraging me especially with my faith and music, for all your prayers and support throughout my life.

Your relationship and love for one another inspires me. You were always so kind and generous. Thank you for looking after me, especially when I was small and my parents had to work. I have fond memories of our times eating fruit, your signature soup, your yellow rice, yoghurts and Ritz biscuits. I remember you teaching me how to pray especially with the beautiful Goan Konkani hymns. You are true inspiration with the way you loved and served everyone around you, especially going out of your way to help those most in need. I hope to carry on your legacy of love.

    I miss you so much and love you forever! I hope you are enjoying all the dancing with Menino Daddy and resting in the loving arms of God in eternity.
