Sr. Joao was such a nice person. A gentle and compassionate soul. Always had nice words for everyone. I loved the fact that seemed to have a genuine passion for learning even into his senior years. He always had a great deal of respect for those around him and I respected him tremendously. He will be missed. Our condolences to the whole family. God bless you Sr. Joao.
