    Maryann, I met you when you came to the Williamsburg Landing as a dinning room server.we connected and became friends. That friendship grew over the years and you became my go to girl and very best friend.we had so much in common.we shared everything about each other and all the ups and downs and somehow with each other we were able to make our baby steps to help each other get through the day. We faced many mountains. But with God and each other we were making our way to the top. Even now I want to pick up the phone and talk to my Maryann. Hard without you. But I know you are in loving arms with "Father" I miss you ssssoooo much. I love you!

    To Maryann, I didn't need to know you well to realize the kind person you were. I met you only once at your youngest son's graduation from High school. But I have come to know your son Richard over the past seven years as my daughter Amy's boyfriend. Through Richard's gentle and thoughtful manner I can see your loving influence on him. The legacy you leave behind will carry your traits and persona with them beyond your lifetime. May you rest in peace. Nancy Steinbuechler
