I remember how Maria’s smile could light up a room and that her cooking could put smiles on a roomful of family and friends. I also remember the way she cherished her family and was so proud of you all. I know you all cherish your many memories of her and these loving memories will keep her with you always. We are so very sorry for your loss.
