Luiz Pontes Funeral

Donation protected
Hello, my name is Emily Pontes, I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to read my brothers story, as of right now we don’t have all of the answers but looking for answers won’t bring him back. My family and I are blindsided with the loss of my brother, Luiz Pontes. On Friday June 30th around noon I received the worst news of my life, my brother hadn’t been seen since 4am. Family and close friends drove from Charlotte NC to Anderson SC to get answers in hope to find my brother alive. The search went on for hours until the next day, Saturday July 1st after 4pm when his body was recovered from Lake Hartwell. Anything donated will be going to his funeral expenses and bringing his body back to North Carolina. Anything helps, please keep my family in your prayers, thank you everyone.
