Maria and I worked together at Albion College and she was such a fun lady. We laughed a lot and talked a lot. She always had a lot of funny things to say. Wish I could have spent more time with her. R I.P Maria

I remember all the fun visits when Uncle Robert and Aunt Maria came to the UP. We all had fun times for years. Miss those days.
