    Maria, Bobby and their entire family have been our close friends for years. Whenever we got to spend time with them we always smiled and laughed and enjoyed each other’s company! Maria was always the center of attention every Christmas Eve. and we’ll never forget our cruise and our VT winter vacation at the condo we rented together. Rest in peace Maria, you will remain in our thoughts and prayers forever.

    So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. We always enjoyed saying ‘hello’ with her at St. John’s and checking in on you and Erick. Thinking of you,
    Paola and Maria (from Bradford St,Quincy)
