I am saddened to hear of Maria’s passing. She was a sweet and kind friend. We met in grade school at St Stephen’s and went on to Madonna. I was so happy to reconnect with her on FB. She’s earned her angel wings 🙏😢

Maria was one of the kindest souls I know. I was honored to be her friend in High School, and although life got in the way, we were able to find each other through Facebook. I will miss her and pray for her as she watches from heaven

Dear Carol & Family,
We are keeping you close in our hearts and prayers during this time of sorrow and grief from loosing your sister, Maria. I will always remember Maria with a beautiful smile always on her face. When I worked in downtown Miami, my office was a few doors down from CitiBank, where Maria worked. I would see her every once in awhile and she always greeted me with her warm smile and a hug. Maria was truly one of the nicest people to me - when I had the chance to see her. I remember how much she loved your Dad and watching football games with him. I also got to play BINGO with your family at one of your birthday parties, Carol, that I was invited to. We had so much fun & that is the memory that I carry of Maria - a very happy soul with a radiant smile who loved her family & friends.
We are so very heavy-hearted for you and pray that with time, the sorrow will lessen & you can smile again like Maria - with pure joy in your hearts.

Love, Tina & Alan and John & Ray
PS: My twins ' birthday is also September 2....now an even more special day for me, knowing it is also Maria's birthday.
