To the Serradas Family:
We were so sorry to hear of Maria's passing. She was a friendly, giving and interesting woman.
We enjoyed her telling us of her native Portugal and its culture. How she loved her beautiful cat
"Baby" and her garden in which she worked with such zest and energy which one would not expect
in a woman of her years. May she rest in Christ and may God give you consolation in your grief.

We didn't know Maria very long before her health began to fail her, but, from what we remember about her, she was a beautiful person. "God rest her soul forever in heaven." She was loved by all and she will be missed. Our Condolences to her family!
