My condolences to a family that I think may be my relatives. My mother's maiden name was Ragland. She was born in Alabama but some of her family migrated to Springfield, Ohio many years ago. I was saddened when I heard of your loss and that Maria had been a Ragland. God be with you these many years later.

Belated condolences to the Davis family. My path crossed briefly with Maria at NCSU. She was a gentle and kind soul, and well liked by all. A truly tragic and senseless loss! Rest in peace, Maria.

To the Davis family: There are not enough good words in the dictionary to describe the warmth and kindness of Dr. Davis. She was an absolute joy to work with and the type of person all of us should strive to be. I know her death is a massive loss to you, her family, as well as her friends, UAH, the science community and anyone who had the honor of knowing her. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Maria and I were roommates when she was at NCSU. We lived in an off campus apartment. She was always so dedicated to her work-I really admired that. I will always remember that she was so very unselfishless. My father had passed away and I did not have a car. My mother did not drive so I needed a ride home. Maria was going through cancer at that time and didn't feel good. She could not have really been "up" for the trip but she offered to take me home. Another grad student we both knew heard of her plans and offered to drive us both. Darcy's car blew a tire on the way there and ended up hitting a tree. We were okay. Her car was totalled. I guess we were all taken to the hospital to be checked out (details are a little blurry-due to dealing with the death and due to my overall poor memory!). I think they both had whiplash and I was in the back seat and feeling pretty numb anyway-I ended up with bumps and bruises only. Anyway I said all that to say that she was a true friend. It is just unfathomable to think of why/how this could have happened and my thoughts and prayers have been with her family and will be. She knew and I know that God is in control and that He understands whether we do or not.
