My deepest and sincere sympathies to Maria's entire family. Maria and I go back to elementary school and we used to commute to the Berkeley School together. Oh how she hated driving on 287! I can still see her hunched over her little white car (I think it was a Pinto) clutching the steering wheel tightly! I will also never forget what a sweet and gentle person Maria was. Maria, may you RIP...

May Maria be at peace and tranquility. May her family find comfort from family and friends during this very difficult time. My sincerest sympathies. I grew up with Maria and all the girls during our times at the Portuguese club. I always thought Maria was one of the nicest girls there was - - - never said a bad thing about anyone and always very bubbly and smiley. A little sprite she was!
