Maureen was full of love for everyone. She has profoundly impacted the lives of so many. I will remember Maureen for her great compassion, humor, leadership, and loving friendship. I treasure all the times we enjoyed together, especially: teaching; sharing an apartment; hiking in the Grand Canyon; skiing; and leadership on my Board for a charitable, non-profit organization. But most especially, I will treasure the simple and wonderful visits we enjoyed together and with her family. Maureen was a true friend and a deeply spiritual woman. I will miss her so much. I am grateful for knowing and loving her. I am happy now for her peace and joy in God. My prayers continue for Maureen’s loving family and friends.
Maureen, oh Maureen, God loved you so much, He borrowed you from us!The loss of your light brings terrible sadness to those you left behind! My mind can only see that big, broad smile of yours!!!!! My memory is of your kindness, your caring and your outpouring of love to anyone who got close to you. Your great spirituality was an example to all of us!I follow in your footsteps till we meet again! Love ya’, girl!
My dear friend Maureen – Your light will always shine for all eternity. Your smile, beautiful spirit and soul are shining examples for anyone who had the honor and great fortune to know you. My love and friendship will always be with you and I pray for you, your family and the many people you touched deeply along the way. Miss and love you…
Another Angel Has Gained Her Wings…while you are gone from the physical earth, you will never be forgotten. You will be missed dearly my friend; however, I know that you’ll always be above looking down on me/us with that beautiful smile.
Dear Wayne, Senny, and Dimitry, Your loss is unimaginable. Maurs was a beautiful person inside and out. She was (is) loved so much by so many. We know she will hold you in her embrace forever. Please accept our deepest sympathy and know that you are in our thoughts. Sincerely,Dale and Hank XO
Until I heard of MaureenΓÇÖs sickness I, each time I thought of Maureen a smile would unwittingly come to my face. Just couldnΓÇÖt help it, as natural as the sun rising in the morning, think of Maureen and smile! From way back when, her energy, happiness, love, excitement for life filled our gettings together. Prayers are with her family during this difficult time. She was a wonderful person in so many ways and I am sure thoughts of her will put smiles on my face for years to come.
If love could have kept you alive, you’d still be with your beloved children and husband. Only we adoptive moms know the depth of love and gratitude we feel for our children and the magic of how we found one another in this world. I know that your soul will forever be watching over them and if you need my help on this earth, just send me a sign…you too Wayne, Kseniya and Dmitry xo. -Andrea
