Querido Pocho,

con ese nombre te conoci y por ese nombre llora mi querida abuela Reina. Un llanto de dolor tan profundo que solo refleja el amor contenido en el. No compartimos mucho momentos pero recuerdo especialmente uno que me acompañara a lo largo de mi vida.
te digo gracias en nombre mio y de mi familia, por supuesto tu familia.
Tu Hermana Reina, tu sobrina Monica, mi hermano Gustavo y mio.
Saludos a mi familia lejana cariños.

Pocho,

I still can't believe that you are no longer with us, it has been 8 years today that the tragedy happened, I look at the images on the tv 8 years on and I can't believe that something like that could happen in this world and take away so many people with it including yourself.

When I first heard the news about you I burst into tears, this feeling of saddness and emotion came over me that day, I didn't want to believe that you were there and that it had happened to you.

I remember my father talking to your son Alvaro and he confirmed to us that it was true. For days my family and I remembered the good old days that we all had together, dad especially shared alot of memories of things that you both used to do, you were so close along with your son Alvaro, you were both always joking around and having a good time.

Dad told us many stories about the two of you and how you used to play up and we'd laugh and we say "yep that was Pocho" and then this saddness overcomes us again but we know that you are in a good place surrounded by other family members and I know that when my day comes we will meet again along with my parents.

We miss you so much, life isn't the same without you making a joke and hearing your contagious laugh, may you rest in peace always.

Nature

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.

Pocho:
We are so near another anniversary of the tragedy that took the whole world by surprise, the tragedy that took you away from all of us.
We always remember you and the fun days we used to have. Both you and my Dad used to make us laugh, in our hearts you are both still alive.
I miss my Dad very much too. If you are there with him, please know we love you both, please look after us from above

Abuelo.

This yr has passed by so quickly. It was only a few weeks ago that we celebrated Sebs, Virgis & your birthday, & in a few more weeks it will be the annivarsary again. The day you were taken.

It has always been a particularly difficult time for me to cope. Happening in Sept. (So close to everyones birthdays). Not knowing the exact truth of that day. Pondering. Dwelling. Seeing our loved ones suffering, with questions of why?

I've noticed the trend in me over these yrs you've been away. I tend to start getting a little worse throughout August. Moody. Depressed. Short with the people closest to me.
This yr has been a little better though. The family has really become closer. I can see it. There's so much love now. Everyone, just wants to do right by everyone. Everyone just wants to love each other. I think you'd be really happy if you were here.
Who knows, maybe you are......?
This year will be different for me Pochito. You'll see.

I miss & love you very much.

Grandpa,

I saw your face at mum and dad's wedding video yesterday. I was very happy to see you talking and dancing the tango with Jessica and
Noe.

Time is going very quickly and it has nearly been a year since mum helped me write in your tribute book. I talk to your picture and tell you that I love you very much
all time.

Love always,

My deepest sympathy to the family of Alberto, I happened upon this site by chance while searching for any online sites referring to my daugther, Kara Eubanks, who passed away at the age of 14, April 13, 2007, and this site came up that she had visited and signed the guest book in Sept. of 2002. She was quite the angel doing God's work for others, and only 10 yrs old at the time she sent her condolences to your family. I share in you pain and loss.

Abuelito

Its been more than 7 years since you left on that fateful day, & there hasn't been a day gone by, that your grandchildren haven't thought of you.

The truth is you left your impression on us, like no other. & every memory we have of you is great.

The day still comes as bit of a blur to alot of us. It felt as though it was one bad dream... No, scratch that, it is a nightmare we'll never wake up from.
But, as life goes on, & the days pass, it slowly gets a little easier to cope without you here.
I'm sure you'll be happy to know that we're all sticking together as you wished. & As little Lunita & Jaime get older, you can count on Seba & I to make your presence felt.

Everyone is always telling papi that he is a splitting image of you. So whenever times get a little rough. Jess & I just look at him & we can see you.

I woke up the other day, & realised the anger that i once felt was no longer there. Nor the fear or confusion.
The truth is, i just miss you man, & i am saddened by the fact that i don't remember our last conversation.

Happy New year Abuelo. I hope you and Abuelito Jose are sticking together, as you did on Earth.

I love you

abuelo,
not a day goes by that i dont think about you.
You did so much for me and seb and we love you and thank you very much for it.
I only have good memories (and extremely funny ones, like when u put my glasses back together with blue tac, or when you broke my wardrobe whilst trying to fix the drawer, or when you made me crash on my first driving lesson)

I hope you hear my prayers and thoughts because i talk to you quite a bit, a medium said once to me that you hear everything i say, I believe her.

I hope your keeping up to date with my antics
I know youll be with me on my wedding day.

Love always,

I'd like to send my deepest condolences to Alberto's family.

So sad, Pocho is greatly missed in the Uruguayan community. My parents also came from Uruguay and knew Pocho before arriving in Australian. And were deeply saddened to hear of his passing. I think dad still got my old tape with him on it and it’s good to see that his memory still lives on. I can’t remember him I was young when I met him. My family sends a pray from him.

Dearest Alberto ('Pocho' as some remember you)..
I was very young when I met you, I don't recall it, but my mother told me that you visited our place a few times when I was little. You were good friends with my family and a dear friend of my grandmothers. My family was deeply saddened when they heard that such a special life and friend was taken away by such tragedy. When I was told that you had been around when I was little, I looked through all my photos and my mum pointed you out. It was a very special, warm feeling knowing I had met you as a little girl and that you had shared such fun times with my family. I had the pleasure of becoming good friends with your grand-daughter Noellia during highshcool and we shared some good times together back in those days. She is a beautiful person, just like her grandfather. Five years have passed and you are still a vivid presence in all our lives. You will never be forgotten for the person you were and the many lives you touched in such a positive way. May God bless you and your family and may you rest in peace forever. You will always be missed xx

I am doing a project to display the stories of those who died in this tragic event. I chose Albert because we share so much in common. This man has accomplished so many things which I can only hope to achieve. I firmly believe that this brave man, who used his holiday to visit a sick relative, lived a full life if not a long one. All of you who had the pleasure of knowing this wonderful man are lucky beyond words.

It is now 17 months since you passed and I've just turned 18 months. Mum and dad shows me your picture all the time and dad always says how proud you would have been of me because I love watching soccer and can say "goal" really loud. I'm sorry I don't remember having you here but the photos keep your memory alive. I am proud to say you are my grandfather and will continue to tell your story.
With much love, your grandson Jamie.

I'm originally from Uruguay, same as Alberto and my cousin in Sydney, Enrique Telis told me that there was someone from our Country, a victim in this terrible crime.
This is our way of saying that we are part of this American family. Justice will be done and I know Alberto is in a better place and we are praying for his and all of the victims souls.
Good Bless You, Alberto

There is no solice in knowing your family has been taken away from you in a totally senseless act. I pray for your friends and family everyday Alberto. That they will eventually come to a place of peace knowing that you are looking down upon them all and watching over them.
My prayers are with you.

As a fellow Qantas employee, I'd like to send my deepest condolences to Alberto's family. Even though we had never met, he was a part of our Qantas family.

To Alberto's family and friends, we wish to offer our prayers and thoughts. You are not alone in your grief for the loss of a family member, or of our co-worker. Although we have never met Alberto, we have come to know him in a way we could not imagine. We are reminded so many times a day of what has become such a huge loss to people around the world, and our eyes tear up at remembering our friends and colleagues that can no longer be a part of our lives. Alberto lives on in our memories, in our hearts. We take a moment every day where we remember and bless those whose lives have touched ours, and continue to touch us in so many unexpected ways and times. God bless you all.
