Maria José had a profound love, admiration,
and loyalty to her family and friends, and showered that upon us, even as
she was losing her battle with vascular dementia. Each one of us was always
told “you are the best in the world” – “tu és a pessoa melhor do mundo”
She loved music, singing, and the colour yellow like the sunshine.

A special thanks to all the family and friends who came to visit with her,
and the wonderful caring staff, while she was at the Madison Care Center
Nursing home.
