    Maria was such an amazing person. She had such a huge impact on our lives. She cared for my two young children (and taught me everything I know about potty training them)! She used to reward them with a walnut or pecan rather than candy or chocolate. My children adored her. I cherish these little memories that encompass the kind of person she was. When we moved out of Elk River and up to the Brainerd Lakes area we continued our friendship. We spent time boating and camping together with our families. We’d talk about business and other interests. Maria was more than my friend, she was like a sister. I’m heartbroken and I miss her terribly.

    My sincere condolences to you Andrew and your children and to all the family members. I worked with Maria at Kids Play and loved her. She was a very caring person and she loved kids so much. She will be greatly missed!

    I am so incredibly sorry for your loss of Maria. Maria walked along side of us as Tony was diagnosed with and fought his cancer battle. She was the first person we called for advice. She sat next to Tony getting vitamin drips. She was such a lovely, gracious, and supportive soul. Her positive attitude was infectious. I am so happy to have gotten to know her. May God comfort all of those that love her so much. Sending all my love and prayers.
