It was with saddness we learned of the passing of Maria. We always looked forward to them coming in for breakfast on Sunday after church. Jose and Maria always had a warm smile for us and they brightened our day. It has been a long time since we’ve seen Maria but her memory remains in our hearts and we send our sincere sympathy to all of her family. The Herle Family
