    • Tim, boa tarde!
      Sou irmã de Nelson e meu nome é Maria
      Estou respondendo sua mensagem porque não foi transmitida diretamente para Catherine, sua esposa.
      Se você guardou um convite por tanto tempo é porque ele foi um amigo. Aliás, nessa matéria ele era muito bom. Além de sempre comer bem.
      Ele nos deixou muita saudade. Sempre cuidadoso com todos. Sim, ele se foi há muitos anos, mas é como se fosse hoje. Lutou bravamente a favor de sua saúde, mas Deus o queria perto dele.
      Sua esposa, Catherine, que muito o apoiou, autorizou que ele descansasse eternamente no Brasil.
      Somos felizes por tê-lo como irmão. Foi um excelente filho. Aqueles que todos gostaria de ter.
      Obrigada pela mensagem carinhosa.
