  1. Fond memories of your wonderful cooking, lethal home made slivovitz, and your kindness. Will never forget your unease when taken “yabbying” for the first time. We did not know what it meant in your mother tongue. Love from Kath & Dennis Avery both deceased, Kent, Sherri-Lee, Philip & Clinton a.k.a. “Fred”.

  2. Maria, you were so brave, caring and achieved so much in your lifetime. You were also a kind friend to me who told me great stories of your new life in Australia and also tried patiently to teach me some of your great food recipes. I will miss you always
