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.

My deepest sympathy is extended to the Davis & Ragland families during this extremely difficult time. Maria was a "great" Doctor and wonderfully aspiring young lady. She will be missed tremendously. Continue to hold to God's unchanging hands.

Maria was a dear friend and fellow believer when I knew her while she attended Brooks Avenue in Raleigh in the late 80's and early 90's...I will surely miss her.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die…(Eccl 3:1-2)
I am so very sorry for Dr. Maria Ragland-Davis' passing. I knew Maria as a undergraduate student at the University of Michigan, College of Engieering. She was a enjoyable and a beauitful person. My symnpathy goes out to her family. Roderick, remember, Maria may be gone from her earthly home, but you will see her again and what a time that will be.

There is really no words that can ease the sorrow of a love one. Although, I can assure the families that Our God is too Awesome to make a mistake. If their is any comfort think on the beautiful memory of your love one. Also remember that Evangelist Nancy Malone Cooks in Mobile, Al will forever keep the families in my prayers.

“Jesus Wept.” (Jn. 11:25) a simple but profound statement but these words describe my intense feeling of sadness and loss of my beloved friend and colleague, Dr. Maria Ragland Davis. For sixteen years Maria has been a part of my life and I am so blessed for having known her. I met Maria when she was a Research Assistant Professor at Alabama A&M University in Dr. Khairy Soliman’s Lab and I was a PhD. Student. Since meeting Maria in 1994, she has played two pivotal roles in my life, one as a sister in Christ (she was a member of Northwest Church of Christ and I a member at Farriss Dr. Church of Christ) and secondly as a mentor and friend. She loved Christ, her family, and science but most of all she loved life. Whether by telephone or e-mail, Maria was always ready to offer words of encouragement for your loss, pain even disappointment. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing chemotherapy, Maria would send me comforting notes. October ‘09, I invited her to the University of Memphis to present her research to our biology department seminar and she gladly accepted. Following, the seminar we went to dinner and enjoyed some Memphis barbeque. We talked and laughed into the late night until we both fell asleep. She was certainly a unique person and I am going to miss her so very much. My prayers go out to the family whom she loved intensely.
