You are missed so very much. Your smile, your words, your presence...The earth has lost a beautiful flower, but the heavens have gained a sweet angel. In loving memory of a terrific person.

You will be forever missed. Even my husband, who never met you (but always expected to and looked forward to doing so) has been affected by your loss. He will always be grateful (as I am) of the love and support you gave me during my transition to adulthood in my college years. Your have made a large impact on the world, and you will live on in the hearts and minds of all you have touched. I love you very much, Maria.
