Maria was always good company. I always looked forward to seeing her because I knew whatever she said was going to be genuine and funny. I knew I was going to have a good laugh and as the saying goes laughter is good for the soul. Maria was always good for my soul. She will be truly missed. Every time I make banna pudding I will think of her and how she told me it reminded her of her Mother's. Rest peacefully my firend until that day we see each other again.

I have to leave another message to let butch know I was there for the funeral but I watched it on my phone. Butch and Marie you were my neighbors and so good to me since I was a little girl, then when we moved back with my son and husband you were still there for me and my family. I've never met any family as amazing as you too, the most giving gracious people I have ever met. And when you moved and we weren't neighbors anymore I was so sad but so happy for you guys to have your next adventure, I never thought I would get a call that Marie was gone:/ she helped me through some really tough spots when I was young and I know she is an angel in heaven at peace looking down on us. I love you guys and butch I'm so sorry I know your heart is broken but I know she is still with you every moment of every day.

Ms. Maria, I am really going to miss you. You brightened up any room you stepped into. Your carefree personality. The way you bossed up but always showed love. I'm going to miss your back in the day stories. You were so beautiful on the inside as well as the outside ( Lady with the red lipstick). You enjoyed life to the fullest. You were one of the most loving & giving people I have ever met. I'm so glad you became a part of of our family, Auntie Deb's bestie. I'm going to miss you Ms. Lady, Auntie Maria. God bless your soul!

Mom, I know your radiant energy, personality and smile is lighting up the heavens! I’m thankful for our connection, for your heart and you always reaching for CJ and I. I’m going to miss you more than you’ll ever know. Our talks, your laugh, you fussing, your cooking, you holding my hand, your hugs, your face lighting up when we blessed you with something you loved, but most of all your love and sincerity. You never stopped being genuinely you. Get your much deserved rest in heaven and promise to look down upon us every now and again to warm us with your grace. We love you so! My prayers and love are forever extended to you Dad (Butch), the Carey and Davis Family and friends. Always… Ronetta and CJ

Butch,johnnie,Ali,Millicent,charlotte,Elaine,Rodney and Rodell. I feel your pain.
