I am very sorry for your loss. May the memories you shared with Maria bring you comfort along with the comfort God provides to those who search for him in prayer. John 5:28,29 also provides comfort by means of a hope to see our loved ones again.
My deepest condolences to the family. May God wrap his loving arms around each one of you and bring you comfort and peace. I met Maria years ago and she was always smiling and so very positive. I enjoyed the energy she brought with her daily. She was kind, sweet and always a pleasure to talk to.

Maria was a wonderful friend and caregiver to our mother, Chris Moore. Maria was always attentive, upbeat, communicative both in listening and sharing, and uplifting. Mother is able to remember and converse today very improved over the past couple of years and we attribute that to Maria and her special gifts. A truly wonderful person. Family, you are in our prayers and thank you for Maria.
