I would like to send my condolences to the Ribeiro family. I am very sorry for your loss.
(I worked at Sunset Bakery in 1985. It still holds the title "The Best Bakery" ever in my opinion.)

Manny, Debbie, Jamie, Lindsey and Melanie. I'm so sorry for your loss. Uncle Ferdy was such a good man. I'm so thankful that Denise & I were able to see him a couple of weeks ago. We had such a nice visit and he was making us laugh. He will be missed.
Love you,
