ADD A MEMORY
Sandi D'Azevedo

November 13, 2018

It is difficult to summarize a person’s life when it has lasted 98 fulfilling years and is represented by five generations. The way my grandmother impacted the lives every person, will remain with them for all of their days. She instilled principals in her children that have been passed down the generations and served as a beautiful example to live by. The dedication to her family was the fabric which she wove into every facet of her life. Grandma had an outlook so positive, and a faith so strong, we should all honor her memory by embodying those characteristics in our own lives. Love lasts forever, and the hearts we touch are bound together from one lifetime to the next. This knowledge gives us the faith as we take our journey. Now that she is in heaven with Grandpa, the love of her life, I know she is at peace.
We will miss you...Love Sandi, Josh, Jake, and Dara

My mother-in-law was a special person in my life that I have always looked up to, learned from, and shared 48 years of lasting memories with. She was loved by me and everyone else whose lives she touched.
She was a guiding light and impacted her wisdom on me and everyone else she came across. She helped me find the courage and strength to face times in my life when I didn't know if things would ever be the same again but she was right; those times passed and the sun shined on my life again with countless blessings.
She was all about family and enjoyed hosting countless gatherings and fabulous parties over the years, wanting no one to be left out but embracing the idea that everyone should be close and included. We all have beautiful memories together because of her.
From the time I met her she showered me with love and I did the same in return, we had such a special bond and I couldn't have picked a better mother- in- law! She embraced my religion, encouraging us to instill those beliefs in our children and grandchildren and always participated in our rich Jewish traditions.
Our relationship was very precious to me, one of my mother-in-law's wonderful traits was always seeing the good in each person. I share many of those same family values and know that part of our closeness over the years was because of that. She was truly was a shining example.
Thank you Mom for all your love, guidance, and sweet memories. They will be with us always.

I think that our most important legacy is our children, the values that we pass on to them, the character traits that we help them to develop, and to then pass on to their children. I know that Grandma believed that also. When I was a child she and Grandpa helped my parents in their efforts to shape myself and my siblings into good people by providing loving guidance and support. She had many talents, and in fact was a driven person, who redirected her ambitions to focus on nurturing her family. She threw all of her considerable energy into helping to make us all into the people that we are today.

In her hall bathroom is a plaque that says something like this “Parents write on the hearts of their children that which the rough hands of the world cannot rub off.” We all have her indelible words written on our hearts and I will forever be grateful to her.
I love you Grandma--Theresa

I have such fond memories of growing up with the D'azevedo family. Sleepovers, family get togethers, cookouts - they are all such great memories from my childhood. And I always loved Mrs. D'azevedo and how she welcomed us into their home. I was so very happy to see her again last year at my parents' 75th anniversary party. It had been many years since I had seen her, but she was still the same lively and lovely woman I had always known.
My condolences to the entire family and sending much love to you.

Mrs. D' Azevedo was a very special person.
I will never forget the glint in her eye, her smile, and her laugh. Of course, she was strong and could be stern too. I will always treasure her including me at so many family dinners and allowing so many sleep-overs. Of course, I had to help set the table and do dishes just like everyone else. I also remember when she brought Marie home from the hospital. Jeannette and I were sitting on the couch and she handed Marie to Jeannette. After a few minutes, she turned and looked at me and said, "Now, your turn." She made me feel like one of her own and that meant and means so much to me.
Her passing brings great sadness, but her life brought much happiness to others. I hope that all who grieve for her will find comfort in the warmth and comfort she gave.

I was so sad to hear of Mrs. D’Azevedo’s passing. I will always remember her as a person with so much energy and a lot of class. Her legacy will live on in her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. My condolences to the whole family. May she Rest In Peace!

Mrs. D'Azevedo (as I still call her after 60+ years) was such a beautiful lady, both inside and out! There are so many great times and memories our families had starting with living across the street in Hialeah and through the many years of friendship. Even though she was small in stature, she was huge with love and caring. Always welcomed into her home. I am so very sad to hear of her passing. My prayers and thoughts are with and for her family.

Lovingly,
Pat and Mark Levin

Some of my fondest memories while growing up in Hialeah are ones of living across the street from "The D'Azevedo's". I remember liking Mrs. D'Azevedo (Anita) and her spunky spirit. After 50+ years, it was such a joy to see her again at my parents 75th wedding anniversary in July 2017. She really hadn't changed much ... still tiny ... and perhaps a little slower, but as sweet as ever! I am so sad to hear she has passed. All of you will be in my prayers during this difficult time.

Lovingly,
Kathy & Jim Herig
