Six years ago today, Maria arrived in London to visit. Up to that point, she was my sister’s (Diana Hechtkopf) life long friend. She was a sister to my sister. Therefore, by definition, she was my sister too! But I had only met her, talked to her briefly. But now she was staying with me, sharing my flat for a visit. I was worried it might be a little weird since I didn’t know her well. I come home from work, and she'd have dinner ready. She wanted to sweep my kitchen, but couldn’t find a broom, so she bought me one. She was independent and hilarious. It was a wonderful time. When she left, she gave me a $2 bill... she said “Never spend it, and you’ll always have money.” When my sister told me not to send flowers, but pay down your credit card, I laughed out loud. That was so Maria. I was saddened to hear she had such a terrible disease. But the last years were on her terms. She so loved her family. She was a devoted friend to many, and we shall miss her. Go with God, Maria... be at peace. We will see you again. 💐❤️🙏🏼
