Avo Maria, I’ll never forget the countless card games and tricks that we shared, “hee-ho” ing up flights of stairs, or watching soccer together. I’m so happy that I got to spend a lot of my childhood with you; creating positive, distinct memories along the way. You are loved by many and missed by us all. Rest in paradise

50 years of only happy memories. Not one bad memory. Not one. Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love you. Mario and I were your grandkids, but we were more like your youngest kids. You were so loved by us. What we had was different, so special. You were not only our grandmother, you were Bo. I was your “lolinha”. You were in my life everyday for 16 years. Then we spent every summer together in Portugal. Again, all happy memories. It was a mutual, unconditional love, something so special. It’s no secret we were so close. We were happy together, just being together. We could just talk and talk. Then, you decided to come back to America and live with my parents. I was so happy! What an amazing gift for me, Zé and our kids. We all love you so much. It was so special. You’d always say.... Troy was a DaPonte, so much like grandpa. Austin was your jester, a bruxo. He’d amaze you with his card tricks. You’d look at him and just wait, because you knew that he’d make you laugh. You had such a bond with Kya. She’d give you Kya hugs. You loved Kya hugs, so did she. You prayed, loved her, and supported her through her tumor surgery and recovery and beyond. They will always remember how you watched sports with us. It was so funny how when you watched the Devils games with us, you even wore the light up horns. We always startled you when they scored. You even shot basketball in our driveway. Such great times. You were at all of our parties and special days. Everyday was special when we were together. Priceless memories. You crocheted blankets for us. They loved playing cards with you. I can go on and on. 50 years - what a blessing. I was so blessed, so loved by you.
You were so loved by us. We are going to miss you. We know that you are reunited in paradise. Bo is with his batata again. It is ok now. Please thank him and give him a hug from me.
I love you both!
You’ll both be in my heart forever!

Yesterday heaven gained an angel. Avó Maria, you were the absolute best. Every moment I spent with you - whether it was playing cards, watching the Thanksgiving parade, shooting basketball, or rooting for the Devils - put a smile on my face. So many of my greatest memories are with you. I miss you so much but I truly know you are in a better place. I love you forever.
