Maria truly treasured life and loved being with friends & family. She organized endless parties with perfection and used her artistic gifts & talents to help others. Her editing & technology skills were flawless and help was always given with great humility and joy. Heaven has gained a truly brilliant, authentic diamond. God must truly be proud of how Maria carried her cross with a smile, and showed us how to live through life's trials. I thank God for Maria's life and encourage those she touched to carry on her spirit of sharing, caring, mercy & love. We will miss you sweet sister & aunt, we love you dearly.

I was blessed to call Maria a friend. On our last "Girl's Trip" Maria had a CD that we played and on that CD was the song, "Precious Lord take my Hand" I think the lyrics are so appropriate at this time. Precious Lord, take my hand Lead me on, let me stand I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone Through the storm, through the night Lead me on to the light Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home When my way grows drear, precious Lord linger near When my light is almost gone Hear my cry, hear my call Hold my hand lest I fall Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home When the darkness appears and the night draws near And the day is past and gone At the river I stand Guide my feet, hold my hand Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home Precious Lord, take my hand Lead me on, let me stand I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone Through the storm, through the night Lead me on to the light Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home (lead me home) Thank you Maria for being in my life!
