A nossa querida tia Zé deixou -nos no passado dia 24 de Dezembro de 2019. Partiu para descansar eternamente com o Senhor. Nós recorda-la-emos sempre como uma pessoa amável, bondosa, pacificadora, disponível para a família e o seu próximo! Boa filha, boa esposa, boa mãe, boa avó, boa tia, boa amiga, deixa o seu legado na vida dos que, como nós, tiveram o privilégio de a conhecer, muito especialmente na vida do seu filho amado e dedicado, Mário Alves, bem como das suas queridas netas. Nós queremos homenagear a vida de uma mulher trabalhadora, empreendedora, mas sempre meiga e gentil, a nossa querida tia Maria José Alves!
Até sempre, querida tia. Encontrar-nos-emos um dia.
Com amor e carinho, dos seus sobrinhos,
Mamy, José e Margarida Cunha.

"A family is a circle of love, not broken by a loss, but made stronger by the memories." We feel forever blessed that we had Tia in our lives, to share our memories, love and friendship. She was a great lady, who loved her family more than anything. She will be deeply missed but never far from our hearts or minds.

The video is a beautiful tribute to Tia and her love for her family.

Love and blessings Tia.
Oscar, Cindy, Miguel, Olivia and Anita

What a beautiful tribute to the life of aunt Maria Jose Alves. The photos recall the precious moments that we shared together.
The separation is hard but the sweetness of our memories help us to keep on.
Mario, Amanda and Monica in this time of sadness we feel comfort in celebrating the life of our aunt, mother and grandmother.
God bless you and all of us with His wonderful Peace.
Love,
Quim and Belinha
