    So sorry for the loss of Maria. Both my husband and I went to school with Maria. We had many high school memories we shared at RHS. She was always so kind to everyone and such a fun loving person. She always had that beautiful smile that I will always remember too. Maria touched many lives and will be dearly missed but will forever remain in our hearts as we were BLESSED to have known her. Please accept our condolences and know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time and in the days ahead.

    I will always remember how nice and fun Maria was, as teenagers we visited each others home for the day in the summer. Her picture looks the same as I remember her, and although I had not seen her since graduation I hope she enjoyed her life and that her family will cherish her memory. Most sincere sympathy to those missing her, gone from this life much too soon.

    Maria was such a pleasure to work with at the Water Authority. My time on the board included frequent meetings and working time with Maria, so I could count on a pleasant, cheery welcome to the office.
