Maura - Congratulations on your graduation. What a beautiful ceremony for such a beautiful young lady. I feel as if I know you, even though we have never met. (Danille and Erica have made that possible.) You and your family will always be in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you each and every day...

That was absolutely amazing. A huge thanks to those who could bring that well-deserved experience to our beloved Maura. It brought tears to my eyes! Mayra, you are truly loved by everyone. Stay strong and know that we are all here to love and support you. xoxo Chelsea Snow

I received this email from a family friend whom is friends with one of Maura's friends.
Let me begin by saying what a BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL story. Sweet Maura what a talented, strong, determined young woman you are. I feel like I was there and have known ya'll forever. Also, KUTTO'S to SHSU for being compassionate and coming to you for your BIG WONDERFUL DAY!
Maura, please know that although we have never met, you have so touched my heart. I will always remember you! You, your family and friends will be in my thoughts, my heart and my prayers daily, especially you and your parents.
You are one of the most BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, TALENTED YOUNG WOMEN I have had the priviledge of praying for.
May God continue to hold us tightly in HIS arms of FAITH, STRENGTH and LOVE always.
I am so blessed to have read your story, you will always be apart of my thoughts and prayers, ALWAYS,

Sweet Erin - May the Lord Bless you and your precious family more than you can think or imagine. I haven't seen Maura since she was a little girl and now to have the privilege of seeing the most beautiful young woman and the most awesome graduation ever. Thank you for the privilege, what a blessing for everyone.

You are all in our hearts and prayers. -
Much love, Karen Warax & family

I wish I would have known about this. I would've so been there...Maura definitely left a huge impression on my life...she will be greatly missed but I'm glad she is in heaven with our Lord and Savior

I had Spanish class with Maura at SHSU. We didn't talk much but she was very nice and beautiful. I don't know why but she popped in my mind today. She will never be forgotten.
