Maria has always been there for her daughter Johanna and granddaughter Olivia. One of my favorite memories includes the time when we had the opportunity to spend the day with her the week prior to her passing. We took her out to eat and watch a movie with Olivia and she had the chance to sit next to her. The day was tranquil and comforting as I witnessed how she would look at her granddaughter with great love. Thank you for all that you have done for us. We will "mish" you greatly.
