She will be remembered for all my life. So much events in her life would have broke down anyone's stamina but not Maria. She lived her life helping others when she had unbelievable crosses to bare herself. Much admired and loved. For today she is in paradise with the lord. "Job well done oh faithful servant" prayers to the family. Love patty thomas

To Anthony and Daniella: I am so very sorry for the loss of your mother. We were good friends since we were kids. I'm so glad I got to see her a few years ago for the first time in over 40 yrs. She remembered me and was doing OK. We had a nice visit. My condolences also to Rosalie, Lydia and Rina. Love, Rosemary Ehnot
