Our condolences to all of Maria's family.
Knew her Father and Mother for a short period of time there in Uvalde. It has been more than 45 years since the last time I might have spoken to her but you can not forget her beautiful smile and her joy of life. She might have been all of 12 years old first time I remember her dad and she stopping by my dads business, maybe 17 years old the last time I remember running into her some place and just as happy and joyful, she had an up lifting spirit that made you feel better after a simple hello.
How sad it is today to read of her passing. We pray that God grant you the family the strength to get through this chapter in your life.
May the Lord give you all the strength and healing at this trying time.

May the Lord give you all the strength and healing at this trying time. God bless and continued prayers!
