Dona Honorina until two years ago was completely lucid, but now instead of when memory fails. There are days of great lucidity and days when you forget everything. The vision is no longer good, but still hears very well and shows a good mood to talk to people, she does not walk anymore, she uses a bath chair at home when needed, but is otherwise very healthy, because everything: she likes chicken, cassava, sweet potatoes, meat and corn foods. Likes to listen forró and surprises from time to time standing, accompanies the rhythm of the music.

Last year, she had to come to Patos to recover the benefits of the National Social Security Agency (INSS) and show good humor, catching everyone's attention.
