In a recent interview with the website UOL, Ricardo Mendes told how he received the news of his wife’s death. “I arrived home after an intense day of work, I didn’t know that Wal had already arrived. The intercom rang, I didn’t answer it. Then came the messages on Whatsapp from the condominium group, until the manager rang the doorbell at my house to warn me of the tragedy. My floor opened and I fell apart”, he told UOL.
Then, he told about the night before the tragedy and what the atmosphere was between them. “She questioned me that I was strange and distant, I replied that I couldn’t continue where there was no more love between a man and a woman. She became introspective, stayed quiet and we went to sleep. We loved each other, I hoped she would accept the separation in a good way.“, said.
