I remember Maria coming into the Library a lot and always had a smile on her face. We would share stories and when my mom was sick she would always ask how my mom was doing. God bless her family in time of grief.

I had the privilege of meeting Maria, in the memory care unit at Masons’, where my mother & Eugene resided! She always had a smile on her face, & I loved the way Eugenes’ face lit up when he saw her! Will miss seeing her!
