In Memory of Teresa Priscila Gomes (Cap-Net Brasil)

With heavy heart, Cap-Net would like to inform all the network managers and international partners the passing of Teresa Priscila Gomes from Cap-Net Brasil on the first week of November 2017 succumbed to the battle with cancer. She was with us in Montevideo, Uruguay during the annual network managers and partners meeting. As Cap-Net is mourning her passing, we would also like to reflect and celebrate the life she had. On the professional front, she is remembered as the coordinator/manager of Cap-Net Brasil. Her diligence, dedication and reliability to serve the country and global network equally. On the personal side, she is remembered as motherly and gentle character. For those who were close to her we lost a sister, an auntie and a mentor. Cap-Net would also like to convey to her family and friends, heartfelt condolences. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
