Riquelme Alves Brito, a beloved son of Ademar Avles and the late Andreas Alves-Brito, was tragically taken from us on February 4, 2024, in a devastating car accident. Born on October 15, 2020, in Brazil, Riquelme's bright and joyful presence touched the lives of all those who knew him. Today, as we gather to mourn his loss and honor his memory, let us celebrate the remarkable life he lived in such a short span of time.

From the moment he could walk and talk, Riquelme had an innate ability to bring happiness to those around him. His infectious laughter and playful spirit were simply contagious. He possessed a deep love for playing games and enjoyed nothing more than seeing the smiles on others' faces. Adventurous by nature, he was like a real-life Spiderman, bounding from one corner to another, leaving behind a trail of laughter and joy.

His effervescent personality radiated pure love, and he effortlessly brought people together with his magnetic charm. In this short time, Riquelme taught us valuable lessons about embracing life fully and cherishing every precious moment. Riquelme's passing leaves a void in our lives that can never be filled.

May we find solace in the memories we shared, the laughter we exchanged, and the love he showered upon us. Riquelme is survived by his loving father, Ademar Avles. During this challenging time, let us come together to support Ademar and hold him close in our thoughts and prayers. Though words cannot begin to heal our sorrow, may we find comfort in knowing that Riquelme's spirit will forever remain with us, inspiring us to live life with the same exuberance and zest.
