Maria was a wonderful niece. I am so lucky to have had her in my life. I will miss her dearly. I will cherish all the memories through the years of fun, travel, lake time and gatherings as a family. I will miss confiding in her and her intelligent advice. RIP my sweet niece, Maria. I'll always think of you when I see a Betty Boop!
