Adorei conhecer-te e os momentos que passamos juntos. Nunca esquecerei os tempos passados nas tuas férias em Valdanta quando eu era ainda uma criança. De ter passeado no teu Corvette Azul quando fui visitar-te a Ludlow, na única vez que voltei ao lugar onde nasci. Descansa em paz tio André Santos. Muito obrigado e até sempre. :(
