To Grandpa João

Note from Oscar: I received this message from Pedro and Bruno, after my Grandpa João passed away on the 5th of March. I think I should share with you. “Two hands will be missed when the bottling line is moving faster And a smile when we arrive at the fireplace. One will be missed at […]
