I just want to say how careing and loveing Margarida always was. She was a great Grandmother to my daughter Nicole. She loved her with all her heart. She will be sadly missed. My daughter and I will always have great memories of her in our Heart..... I remember like it was yesterday. I use to drope Nicole off at her house for a few hours. When i went to go pick Nicole up she was always dressed in diffrent clothes that i sent her in. Her grandmother use to play dress up with clothes and jewlery that she had picked up for Nicole then take pictures of her in them surounded by DOLLS BIG DOLLS......... Thats my a great memory.......
