I loved Maria. We said prayers every time I had to draw her blood. I have missed her so much since I retired from UCH drawing blood.  My thoughts and prayers are with all the family. Cindy Sullivan

My deepest sympathy to her children and her family. She was a beautiful, sweet, kind woman. I will miss her very much.  Descanse Senora.  It was an honor knowing her. I will miss her smile and her greetings every morning.  My deepest sympathy to you all. God bless you.

Madrecita linda, ya te fuistes de aqui. Mi corazon se quedo triste y quebrantado. Pero yo se que ya no estas sufriendo. Ahora puedes correr y volar y andar esos caminos de oro con mi Daddy! Te adoro mi mommy chula! Alla no vemos Momma!
