Dear Ponte Family,
I am so sad to hear of the loss of Vavo. She is the kind of person that lit up a room and that made you feel better just by being in her presence. I didn’t know her well, but the times that I interacted with her (including at her home in Rhode Island for Christine’s wedding) were always filled with laughter and joy. I know she is truly missed here on earth, but God gained an angel on September 4. May you be comforted by your fond memories of her as you celebrate her life. I am thinking of you all and praying for your family.
Love always,
Andrea Lux
