My memories are when I was around eight and would go to her house in ribeira grande. When the house would be smelling of bread or sweet bread . She adored having me around and I loved helping. My aunt would say I was like a daughter she didn't have and my mom would say we could exchange my girl with one of your boys. Tia I will never forget you. There's no pictures of your mom but people have said we look like her. Until we meet again. Love your niece.
