Our Maria was feisty however fair, strong-willed yet softhearted and formidable but flawless. She was an inspiration to me and I am truly crushed by the news. Maria was “my work mum” who was always there for me when I needed her. Being her PA for the last 4 years has been challenging at times but in the best possible way. HD will not be the same without her cheeky smile, loud footsteps and colourful wardrobe. My thoughts and prayers go to Maria’s friends and family at this difficult time. I will miss you Maria <3 Emily x
