Turma de 1970

Prezados colegas da turma 70

Desculpem por meu atrevimento de haver colocado meu nome na turma 70.

Como Iteano a minha turma é e sempre será aquela com quem passei os primeiros meses e anos do ITA. As lembranças do trote, da Cova Dela, da saga do Profeta, curso Fundamental, as namoradas, os sonhos, as grandes decisões, etc, são lembranças indeléveis dos melhores periodos da nossa vida no ITA, E foi um privilégio e honra de os haver compartilhado com vocês.

O nome carinhoso modificado de Fofó é como a minha querida namorada Sylvia me chama, e sempre me chamou por mais de 40 anos, foi me dado em Março de 1966 pelo meu padrinho Fafá. Parece que conheci a Sylvia ontem, no baile da “CONGA” na Aliança Francesa em São Paulo. Ela me abençoou com quatro filhos, quatro netos e mais netos a caminho.

Eu sou um homem feliz e abençoado, e todas as boas lembranças se remontam aos tempos que passei com vocês, meus queridos amigos, e por isso peço a Deus que os abençoe.

Meu correio eletrônico é: e-mail e minhas informações pessoais e profissionais estão na minha página da turma 71

Um grande abraço iteano do seu amigo Fofó.
