  4. Maria, you were the most amazing landlord, friend, and a second grandmother to me and my son for the many many years we lived with you… Very saddened by this news. I dreamt of you 2 nights ago and had a bad feeling and then found out this disheartening news. May you rest in peace and find happiness with your husband and all your other angels. xoxo You will always be remembered.
