I have so many wonderful memories of Maria. My fondest that I will carry with me always was when Maria gave a speech which began with the words: "There is only one Maria Pittordis..." How true that was - Maria, thank you for your inspiration, motivation and overwhelming kindness. Thank you for your words of wisdom, your support and most of all, for being you. You will be missed forever. Claire xxx
