Memories Timeline


  1. Denny, Monica & Michael –

    Where to begin as to how special Maria was and will always be to me. We had so many laughs together back when Robin stayed at your house about the kids and what each one was doing during her childcare years. I have never known anyone who cared so much in her heart for someone else’s children. During the years that we would talk on the phone she was always such an uplifting person. During her years of sickness I would call her to try to cheer her up and I would be the one who was lifted up by her positiveness. She was a dear friend whom I loved dearly. I will miss not talking with her so much. I will always hear her special laugh and treasure that.


  2. We will miss Aunt Maria dearly. She often travelled to visit us and other relatives and even during times when she was ill. She will always be remembered as a very positive, caring, and giving person.

    Chris Kogelnik & Family
