I am saddened to hear of Maria's passing. She was a lovely woman. I worked with Maria for many years at the Dept. of Labor & Training and she was always there to help and encourage her fellow coworkers in the trenches of unemployment. She knew that I always wore cuff links and when her father passed away, she gifted me a beautiful set of sterling silver cuff links and matching tie-tack that belonged to him because she didn't want them to sit in a box somewhere and never be worn again. I wear them often. She had a wicked sense of humor and a quiet grace that endeared her to many. My condolences to Michael and her entire family at this difficult time.
