I am very saddened by Maria's passing, and my heart goes out to all the family; especially her beloved daughter Rose Marie. She treated me as a son and shared many of her life's stories with me. Wishing all who are affected by Maria's passing moments of peace; memories of joy ; and feelings of comfort during this difficult time. May her soul rest in peace.
