Dearest Grace, you and Maria have been in my thoughts for a long time and I am very sorry to hear of your loss. We loved Maria so very much. I just ask Sara of Goodwill about Maria and she told me. I had surgery during that time and did not see the paper. You are all in our prayers. Maria was so very special. She has Gods arms around her. She had such a beautiful heart. God Bless you and your family.
Sorry to hear about Maria, she was such a sweetie. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Grace & Family,
Maria will always be in our Prayers. She was a beautiful and wonderful "friend" to us and our son, Michael. She was Michael's "Sunshine" as she would call him. The Funeral Mass that we were able to attend was such a wonderful tribute to her. We extend to you and your family our Deepest Sympathy & Prayers. We are having a Mass said for Maria here at our church, Immaculate Conception in Wilmington, NC. You should be receiving a Card in the mail showing the date. Please stay in touch. God Bless You All.
Very sorry to just read about Maria. Special thoughts and prayers to you, Grace and the family. God Bless, Dr. John Stevens
To the Riepensell Family:
So saddened by Maria's death. I have known Maria from her younger years in Special Olympics and bowling with my daughter, Chrissy. She was an excellent worker at Good Shepherd where we renewed our friendship; and then missed her when she was no longer working. Her deeply religious
beliefs surely have opened the gates of heaven for her!

SHE WAS ALWAYS A BREATHE OF FRESH AIR WHEN I SAW HER. SHE WOULD ALWAYS GIVE ME A SPECIAL HUG.
YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS...
