Wednesday, the world lost a lovely woman.  Maria Ferrell- a spunky, Puerto Rican powerhouse who practically raised the teenagers at my high school.  She is my best friend’s mom.  I have known her for almost 30 years. Her accent easily fills my head and her actions dominate my memories.  She was hospitality personified.  Her quick wit could handle the toughest teen and her energy could surpass us as well.

She is so lovely in this photo with her two little blessings- My friend’s children.

I am heading to see my sweet friend Sunday night and have the privilege of being at the memorial for her mom.  I will be eager to celebrate the life of such an amazing lady.
