Please join us to celebrate the life of Maria Munar, an extraordinary woman who was generous, giving, humble, and above all loved God with all her heart, mind, and soul. She had an impact on those who knew her. Her laugh was contagious and her heart was enormously full of love. She would stay without so others would have. She was my mother, by best friend, my comfort and my foundation. No words can express my gratitude to God for sending me such a beautiful angel to care, love, guide and teach me. Thank you God for allowing us to be together. I love you mom…until we meet again.
