To Maria’s family,
Our shock & sadness are with you. What a beautiful lady with gentle eyes. We knew her at Cairnsmore & sat with her at a few luncheons, laterally at Romeo’s. She was lively, fun, and enjoyed her wine delicately and her fresh air “smokes” outside. She had a full on busy life and good kids on top of it all.

How lucky we are to have known this lovely lady. She was a gift to so many people. She provided love, laughter and dreams!! It was in her blood to always go forward, never letting anything take her down on this green earth. Only when God called her to rest, she allowed her gaurd down. Never forgotten and always loved. Even from miles away❤️
