Maria was my dearest friend from the LA College of Chiropractic. After not being able to reach her, I decided to search on-line. I was hoping an obituary wasn't going to be found.

Maria was one of the most kind-hearted people I know and the finest of chiropractors. It saddens me to see an illness which I prayed would be successfully resolved end in the loss of her life. She will forever be missed and hold a special place in the lives of all that have had the pleasure and joy of knowing her.

We'll miss you Maria,

John Pirritano, DC
