After the death of Edson Arantes do Nascimento ‘Pele’ on December 29, 2022, Marcia Aoki, the last wife of ‘O Rei’, said goodbye to him through an open letter through the three-time world champion’s social networks and took the opportunity to thank the fans for all the messages they have sent to the family, as well as the different tributes made.
Pelé’s widow’s farewell was published in an image, but in the text of it you can read: “One month after the King’s death, we will make the first post as he would like: ‘Thank you very much’”.
Subsequently, Marcia Aoki’s writing for ‘O King’ starts with: “Saying goodbye to the one I love and getting used to not having the reason for my life by my side, his love full of affection, his unique humor and his complicity, will take time.. I just want a few more moments to exchange glances. A few more days playing with your puppy, Cacau”.

He continued: “Sometimes I find myself longing for you to say, ‘Marcia, my love, good morning! See how beautiful the sea is today’. Despite knowing that this is an inevitable destiny for everyone, the realization that this moment has come to me is the feeling of an empty space, of absence, that presses on my chest.”.
“At the same time, there is a strong feeling of gratitude for being able to share my pain with the whole world. We have received millions of messages of affection and solidarity that fill my heart with comfort and peace.. I want to thank all his fans who continue to pay tribute”.
“I also want to thank Santos F.C. and the city of Santos (in São Paulo), for their support towards us at a difficult time. Sharing my life with Edson was my chance to live a true love story.. Sharing the love for Pelé with you, too. This love will never die and will always be with us”.
