Fond Memories

My deepest sympathy to the Komaromy-Hiller family. Szofia, I have such wonderful memories of traveling to Washington, D.C. to join you and your parents and brother when you received your national writing award. What a kind and caring woman your mother was and how proud she was of your accomplishments. She will be in my prayers, as will all of you. May she rest in peace.

A constant friend

I got the chance to know Maria through her daughter Szofia. Szofia and I were friends from a junior high band program at NDA. The Komaromy-Hillers have been constant friends. While there may be large gaps in time, they always pick up where we left off. I have many chance encounters with Maria and each time I felt she was handing me the best advice, “Live with the Holy Spirit.” She had such a way of touching your soul and helping you to be a better person. She will be missed and my condolences to the whole family!

Komaromy-Hiller family

My deepest condolences to the Komaromy-Hiller family for the passing of your wife and mother.
