Glauto’s body was laid to rest at a funeral home on Avenida Miguel Rosa, downtown Teresina. In the coffin, the River-PI flag stretched to represent Glauto’s love for the Piauí team. In addition, friends placed Styrofoam with a beer next to the body because the doctor, before his death, commented that he would like to serve beer in his wake, and not coffee, as is customary.

“I thank him for being alive.”
Several people treated by Glauto participated in the festivities. One of them was Fernanda Pereira dos Santos, 53, who had been sick with Glauto’s disease for a year and two months, and who insisted on going into vigils to see him off. Fernanda was diagnosed with throat cancer. According to her, thanks to him, cancer is no longer a part of her life.
“The cancer was discovered and my son showed it to him, because my son is a physical education teacher. It was Glauto who told my son everything about how the treatment was going. First I thank God and second I thank Him for keeping him alive. he is a wonderful person. said the former patient.

Fernanda said the doctor treated her for free many times. The last time she saw him was when Glauto told her he was healed.
“He was the one who told me I was cured. It was the last time I was with him. I cried a lot, a lot when I knew he passed away. It was my daughter-in-law who broke the news. To this day I can’t believe it. But it’s all in God’s time.” He commented: “Every something that God allows.”
Reagan Mendes, Glauto’s cousin, also spoke about the importance of the doctor in treating her sister who passed away. “She was a patient of Dr. Glauto. He was a very caring person for his patients. He always called, every day. He used to go to my house a lot looking for my sister who was special,” he recalls.
