  1. Hard to imagine a world without Manny. He was bigger than life! Full of adventure and the life of any party! He had the best stories and was the star of some of my favorite stories too. Now he’s our angel. Looking over us from above. He’ll be the one encouraging us to have fun and live life to the fullest, like he did! We are all better people for having met/known/loved Manny Teixeira ❣️RIP Manny
