    Doris, Frank, Mike and families, the world is a little less bright with the loss of Maria. We will miss her energy and warmth. She was very courageous and I know that her family was the most important part of her life – you did her proud with all the amazing support you provided the last couple of years. The Vokurka’s wish you all some peace and are remembering Maria for the special person she was and all the wonderful time we shared together.
