Maria, Words cannot express how much you will be missed. You were inspirational, fierce, supporting, caring, and no matter how busy you were you always had time for us. You listened to us. You encouraged us and you shared your vast experience with us to help us on our journeys. We had so many wonderful team gatherings with you. We are the lucky ones, we got to enjoy the many happy times with you. You can never be replaced and things will never be the same without you. Thank you for everything and for believing in me. I will miss the sound of your footsteps and laugh as you came down the corridor, I will miss our chats, but most of all I will miss you. Rest in peace and sweet dreams. All my love.
