So sorry for your loss. Maria was a great lady. I met her when I started working st the Sanderson Centre 28 years ago. She always made sure our staff was looked after when we went in for lunch or dinner. She always remembered our names and always made sure we did not have to wait long for our meals. May you rest in peace Maria.
great loss

I was shocked to read about the passing of Mrs. Anastasakis. I did not know until today (Sat. Oct 7th) about her passing. I would have definitely attended the funeral. She was a long time friend to my parents. I recall her always working at Tops Restaurant. My hearts are with the entire family. Hugs.
my condolences
