Dear Brothers and Sisters...Maria is Dead

Maria battled cancer for several years. All her neighbors knew she was dying and yet it took us by surprise.  Since her diagnosis we encouraged her to fight and she did. Neighbors fought with her, sharing their own cancer survival stories.  We prayed often.  Friends babysat her boys and others drove her to appointments.  Others cleaned her house.  Maria’s spirits were high despite her fatigue.
