Angel wings.13 May 2015
A message from Jo via Tiago's Journey FB page….
Heaven has received another brave yet tired soul to care for. Jose Tiago Gordon Pinheiro gained his amazing, fast, shiny, superpower wings yesterday afternoon.
We really believed until that moment that our darling cherished big boy could beat his nasties, but they took his smile, they took his mobility, they took the sparkle from his eyes and in the end his spirit left that shell of a body and rescued my baby.
Our big boy, 4.9 years old. Living and laughing with nasties since he was 2.5 years old. He is loving, he is clever, he is adventurous, he is amazing.
"You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on."
I have learnt much from my son. To never, ever, give up.
There is no Cancer in heaven, he knew this and really liked the sound of it.
Team Tiago is still open for donations… In turn the family will be making donations to 809 foundation and Dream Chaser Foundation.
Thank you so very much for your support in the past few months - we have gained so much strength and positive energy from you all.
