In lieu of flowers
Who else knew Victor?
Today on the first anniversary of our beloved Victor's passing, we would like to thank and express our gratitude to all of you that have supported us on this devastating journey. Some of you wrote beautiful words of remembrance or shared pictures on Everloved, some wrote or e-mailed us individually, some called, texted, or visited with us throughout the year holding our hands and our broken hearts. We thank all of you today as we remember our Victor. We are and always will be devastated. We will miss him forever, as we will love him forever. He was our shining star- a humble, kind, generous and caring person that always thought of others before himself. There will always be a void and a heavy heart. His absence will be felt at every gathering, family photo, and celebration. But, as difficult as it is and will be, we will try to always remember the love and joy he brought to each and every one of us.

Caro Adélio, Hetty, Maria Cristina e Joseph,
Queria apresentar as minhas condolências. Soube recentemente do falecimento e fiquei profundamente sentido.
Não é de todo natural um filho partir antes dos pais.
In lieu of flowers
Dear Adelio and Hetty, Maria Cristina and Joseph,
I was very sad and deeply chocked to learn that your eldest son Victor has passed away last May. Although I never had the chance to meet him, I know that he was a most wonderful son, brother and friend, and that his loss is irreparable for you all. Please accept my deepest condolences.
With all my friendship,
My heartfelt condolences...

There are no words strong enough to express the deep sadness felt when I heard that your beloved son Victor was gone.
Victor enlighted your daily life for a so short period of time from the moment he grew from a little baby up to a brilliant adult full of life and energy. During all this time, he made you laugh, be mad of him, kidding, worrying, be happy, be proud, share good and difficult time, All these precious memories will stay forever in your heart as well as complicity you succeeded in built up with him. He now becomes your guardian angel to always be at your side, in every situation.
Nobody can understand the daily pain you and your family live since this so unfair event hurt you... Nevertheless, I strongly wish that time helps to change the pain for this huge loss to something more bereable. I wish it helps you to remind only good times and brings you inner peace.
In between, I send you lot of courage and plenty of energy.
With my best friendly thoughts
Im so sorry for your loss my deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers for all the family.
I wish you a lot of courage.
Losing a child is the worst thing that can happen in life. I convey my sincere condolences and all my friendship at this difficult time.
It is with great emotion and sadness that I learned of the grief that touches you. I send you my best thoughts and all my support for this painful time. With my sincere friendship, I wish you a lot of courage!
There is nothing worse in life than losing a child.
My heartfelt condolences.
I am wholeheartedly with you during this terrible ordeal and wish you a lot of courage.
I just heard the terrible news
No words can bring heartwarming
I send you all my very best thoughts and all my affection
First of all I convey my most sincere condolence to you, you wife and all your family.
A so tragic thing could not be understood and could only bring suffering.
Only thing I can do is to tell you that I share your pain and I pray for him.
Today is thirty days that your mom and I, Joseph and Maria Cristina, grandma and grandpa and uncle Victor and so many others who love you dearly, found out about your totally unexpected passing. We're devastated and miss you terribly. A wound was opened in our hearts that will never heal. The pain and sadness are unbearable. I would do anything just to be able to hug and kiss you one more time. I - we, love you deeply and will do so for all eternity. Rest in peace my beautiful, beautiful son. With God's grace, we will meet again...
There is no word hat could help to overcome the pain you are facing. Even if I have not seen Victor for a long time, I am feeling deeply sad and empty. I remember him as a little kid when I was visiting you in NY with my parents. Me and my familly were so fan of those good moments with you and especially spending time playing with Victor. I see myself seating at your dinner table next to Victor, I still have the taste of the zucchini bread...Please excuse the very simple words I am sharing with you, I cant find some that would help you. I am sure, from where my parents are looking at us, they are very sad as well. I am joining my deepest thoughts to all of you.
My humble and sincere love to all of you. Rashmi Shroff
It is with a very heavy heart and deep sadness that I am sending to you my sincerest condolences. I remember Victor as a little sweet boy when I would visit you in New York and I am so deeply saddened.
I am so very sorry and I will keep Victor and your family in my prayers.
With all my love,
You taught me essential lessons of responsibility, dependability, reliability and patience, which survive your time here, and stay as an ever-present framework for me to be the best possible version of myself.
I know we'll meet again. I love you,
I hope he is in heaven, at peace with God
our feelings to family and friends
Denis Theisen and family
With much love,
