On Thursday, January 6th, my Vavo passed away at the age of 84. She was such a wonderful lady, so full of love and so full of happiness. I was devastated that I could not be at home surrounded by my family, and that I could not be there for them, but I was able to be strong and deal with this difficult time.
My Vavo was such a selfless person, and always was more concerned about others, rather than pleasing herself. She was the most amazing mother, who moved from Portugal to Canada, and raised four kids on her own. She is such an inspirational woman, and was able to successfully make it on her own, and produce such a loving tight knit family.
Vavo was the center of our family, and we all adored her. She will continue to be in our hearts. We will continue to live through her generous and caring actions, and will continue to be the strong and loving family that she created.
I will forever miss my darling Vavo, and will never forget her smile, her contagious laugh and her warm presence. She will always be in my thoughts, and she will continue to be one of the most amazing ladies I have ever known.
Rest in Peace ♥
