To all who are taking the time to read these tributes thank you. Maria or as I called her " Mer" is my older sister. We have special memories that will always keep her alive. Mer had a way of settling people down, by calmly saying "whats going on?" May she be at peace her job here on earth is done. Now she is our guardian angel. "Luv ya" as she would say.

I don’t know where to start, you were in my life for so many years, but I remember the first time Uncle Bud brought you to our house, you tucked me in bed that night. One of my favorite jobs was working for you & Uncle Bud at El Taco, we laughed, argued ( I put to much meat in the tacos😂) & cried ( when I reached in the deep fryer to get a taco shell I dropped & burned my hand 🙄, later we laughed about that too!)
Rest In Peace Maria ❤️
