    Maria, You were a very special friend. Our mutual love of animals is what brought us together, but it was your kind and loving heart that made us friends. We were over a thousand miles apart but when we spoke on the phone it was like chatting with my next door neighbor. I will miss you my friend. May you rest peacefully in God’s loving arms. To Maria’s family and friends please except my condolences on the loss of your sweet Maria. God Bless
