This is heart-breaking news.  Many of you will remember Vagner joining 
us from Brazil for CG meetings.  Vagner, I am so sorry to hear of your 
unimaginable loss. I have no words.

  Solidarity of the W3C to the family of Vagner Diniz

7 February 2019

The W3C Team and Offices offer their sincerest condolences to our W3C 
Brazil Office Manager Vagner Diniz, his wife and family, for the tragedy 
that befell them when the Brumadinho dam collapsed late January 
<https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-47017551>, claiming the 
lives of their daughter Camila, their son Luiz, their pregnant 
daughter-in-law Fernanda and other family members whose bodies we keep 
hoping they find. We have no words in the face of such a dramatic and 
horrifying event and our hearts go to them as well as the many people 
who, directly and indirectly, have been hit.

Since 2001, years before the 2007 launch of the W3C Brazil Office 
<https://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/421>, hosted by the NIC.br 
(Brazilian Network Information Center) institute, in São Paulo, many in 
the W3C Team and global W3C Community have known and have met Vagner at 
different occasions. Our heartfelt condolences to Vagner Diniz, his wife 
Helena Taliberti, and his entire family.
