    We met Carlos for the first time in 1972 when we visited our good friends Fatima and Manuel. Carlos was married to their daughter Manuela and he was very generous and kind. He showed us all around the area that time and in future visits. I would like to send my deepest sympathy to all the Almeida family. May god bless you all at this difficult time.

  8. My dear nephews and sister-in-law, at this very sad moment in our lives, let us remember the character of this loved one who has now left us. He was an exemplary citizen, an always attentive man, an intelligent analyst of the reality of Portugal, the United States and the world. O
    Carlos Alberto has been a sportsman since he was young and has maintained that passion all his life, training young people in the United States. He was a very sociable person and a friend of his friend. He was a courageous worker, in order to give his family a quality life. He was an extreme father, a friendly husband, an attentive son and caregiver for his mother and concerned for his father.
    I only have fond memories of my brother Carlos. He always promoted closeness and friendship. He was always an attentive and protective brother. I lost a brother who was always there and who was an emotional support in my life.

  9. Carlos and I started working at the Barrington Y in 1968. He had just moved to the U.S. and spoke very little English. He was a hard worker and an extremely caring person. Members at the Y loved him.
    RIP Carlos
