Our dearest niece and cousin,
We will ALWAYS remember your beautiful smile, so full of love and happiness. Your smile always reminded us of a poem.
"Just A Smile"
"The thing that goes the farthest towards making life worth while, that costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.
The smile that bubbles from a heart that loves its family and friends, will drive away all of the gloom and coax the sun again.
It's full of worth and goodness, too with humanly kindness blent. It's worth a million dollars and doesn't cost a cent."

Rest in paradise our beautiful angel!

One of my fondest memories of Maria is when myself , Maria and Carmela let our friend Ted think That Carmela only spoke Italian - Maria & I were cracking up- our sides hurt as he was speaking slow and loud lol 😂 we continued the joke for hours - I smile 😊 and laugh thinking of that day and many other great times we shared. My heartfelt condolences 💐 to the entire family- I will not say goodbye but see you on the other side. Love, Peace & Blessings, Colleen
