VERDE, Georgete. Rodrigues Gonçalves
Sept. 18, 1924 – Dec. 5, 2011. Our loved one has left us and she would have us be consoled by these words:
Age and infirmity have taken me from you, but death is not the end. I will stay in your thoughts through all that reminds you of me. I remain close by, indeed I am within you. Whenever you see a carnation or a rose, you will be reminded of me because these were my favourite flowers. When you look through old photographs, you will see the happy times we shared. Don’t grieve overlong, for I have fulfilled the job that God gave me to do in life. I worked diligently at it and you are the fruits of those labours. As I journey to my reward I am at peace.
