IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY COUSIN, SANTANA

 IN LOVING MEMORY
OF

SANTANA
MY COUSIN

Santana D'Cunha
Born: 28 September 1946
Died: 15 April 2014

Gama Vaddo, Parra, Bardez, Goa

                      God gave us a fine jewel and then He took it away. Santana, my first cousin, was soft-spoken, and didn't say much, but when we said good-bye to her before leaving Goa after spending our holidays there two years ago, her tears said it all. "God knows when we will meet again" were her parting words. Sadly, providence ruled otherwise. She was indeed a very gentle and kind person. Always humble and soft spoken with only good to say about anyone, and to anyone. 

                      Santana's passing away will leave a huge void in our family. We have together lost one great human being. Together we share our moment of great sorrow.

                      May the soul of Santana rest in eternal peace, and give us comfort in the thoughts of cherished memories that we'll treasure of happier times, especially of our childhood. She was too sweet, too loving and too good to die young. She'll be missed. She lived in Goa and passed away there. She was 67 years old, 3 year older than myself. She leaves behind her husband, 2 married children, 2 grand kids, 2 sisters and a brother, 3 nephews and 1 niece.

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
The world’s weary troubles and trials are past
In silence you suffered, in patience you bore,
Till God called you home to suffer no more.

Over the years on our numerous trips to Goa, when we had to say goodbye, you bitterly cried saying "God knows when we will meet again". Never thought today you are saying goodbye to all of us forever. Thank you for all your LOVE which we will cherish and treasure forever. Love you very much our beloved Santana.
Love Edna
