After becoming a widow, Sônia decided to return to Jati, where she had a residence. And she did a whole investigation to find out where her first love was. She found Láercio’s parents’ house in Jardim and discovered that he lived alone in a house in the countryside of the city. He had returned from São Paulo after having an accident and no longer being able to work. The pensioner went there to declare her love.

“I was very in love with him. All the while I thought: one day I will meet him. As soon as I became a widow, I thought, I’m going to look for my past that I didn’t live”, says the pensioner.

After 40 years, the two were reunited and never parted.

“It was a fulfillment of a word from God that said I was still going to get married. I had several diseases, I asked for death, but I went to church and God told me that I was still going to live a long time and that I was going to get married. When she arrived making the proposal to me, that word was confirmed. Thank God I found happiness and the love of my life. Today I am happy, I love and I am loved. What God promises, he fulfills!”, says Laércio
