Maria, today I learned of your passing and my heart broke. You were more than just a co-worker, but a dear friend who was warm and a loving soul. Maria lived life to the fullest, never missing an opportunity to explore. Family meant everything. Wishing the Gomez family many condolences and know that heaven just got brighter. Till we meet again.

We cant believe she is gone. Maria was always a kind sweethearted person. She brought us joy with her vivacious personality and free joyous laughter. She was all of this, despite attempting to burn down the San Jac pharmacy. We would always recall that incident !It was a great story and we would hear her infectious laugh when recounting that moment. We were privileged to know Maria and have her positive influence become a part of our life. 💗❤ She is going to be missed greatly.

Maria, I have many good memories of you! At work laughing and joking around, the movie club we were part of for several years and the cruise we took with Veronica, her husband, your daughter’s mother in law and my mother. We had so much fun. I will miss you but will have those memories forever.

If I were to describe Maria in one word, that word would be “fun”. She lived her life to its fullest without any regrets. She was a kind soul. A Great friend. A Great coworker. A Great travel companion. I have learned so much how to live my life from Maria.

Family and Friends is all it took to bring a smile to Maria's face, as she always on the go to one or the other, but she always took the time to stop and say hello !
Our lives are richer for having known her as a friend and neighbor for fourteen + years.
Heaven is brighter today with her addition, but our hearts are broken.
Until we meet again dear friend,
Love
Kent

Words seem inadequate to express the sorrow felt by the loss of Maria. She was the most beautiful person inside and out and had heart of gold. Maria will be greatly missed but her warmth, kindness, and gentle spirit will be remembered forever. We love you always and forever - Kelly, Gabbie and Mason
