To the Family of Maria Moreno, Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one.

The former things have passed away.”-Rev 21:4
My Dearest Friend, Liz….we’ve been down this path a few times with each other before, which I am grateful for, to have you in my life, to be there for you in your time of need, as you have been there for me and my family in good times and not the so good times…as you know and have experienced, losing our loved ones is not easy no matter what the circumstances are, I’m so, so sorry for the loss of your mama. I know she was your world, you took such good care of her and she depended on you /your family to give her what she needed in life, which was not much, she didn’t need a lot to make her happy…Maria had everything she needed because of you! You are not alone, you are surrounded by so much love and great family and friends. My heart goes out to you, Lorenzo, Jessica and Kayla…they’ve been part of Maria’s life for so long and I know they will miss her as much as you will.
