People visit their loved ones on All Souls' Day on November 1 in São Paulo and fans of F1 driver Ayrton Senna stop by his grave for a visit. A retired gentleman from the fire department visits every year and he himself was part of the funeral procession at the death of the F1 driver. Translation of the interview with Celio Gonçalves: [3:46-4:53] – Good morning, my name is Celio Gonçalves, I am a retired firefighter sergeant from São Paulo, I have many memories of pilot Ayrton Senna, I worked in the unit in the 4th GI and at that time we were part of the transport of the body of pilot Ayrton Senna. To this day I have memories and I have the fireman's truck plate with me, so whenever possible I come to visit our hero who left marks, I miss him, and is a reason to remember him with greatness. This is a Brazilian! that made a difference at the time and thank you very much. His father was buried along with 94 years old, and they were remarkable people. And one day we will all go through this.
