May God comfort all of the family and friends with his Grace during this time.

We remember visits to Vista to see the family. Maria would welcome you with her loving open arms,
lots and lots of food and that beautiful smile. She was the most amazing cook. Never have eaten food quite as good as hers.

Unfortunately, we are not able to make it out to the service for Maria. We are so grateful we had the
opportunity to visit with family and Maria just days before her passing.

In her Memory we will be donating $200.00 to St. Jude's Hospital. We love you all so much.

Life is so short, but you made the best of it zia. I am saddened that you are no longer here with us, but comforted in knowing you no longer suffer. May you rest in peace zia, I always loved you and you will remain in my heart.

Beloved Maria, we will miss you forever but you will always be in our hearts. Thank you for the many Sunday brunches and get togethers on Strawberry Hill Lane. You always shared your love and nurturing with all and we pray for you now that you may enjoy the peace and joy of Heaven.
