We are thankful to have shared memories with Sr. Manuel, he made such a huge impact on our band family. He played a pivotal role in arranging for the band to go to Portugal in 1988, it was a great memory. We hope the family finds comfort during this difficult time. No words will ever do justice to the legacy he has left on Banda do Sagrado Coração de Jesus. Where lives pass, memories carry on forever.
