“I just met a girl (Ninja) named Maria”
The most beautiful sound I ever heard, MARIA
Say it loud and there’s music playing;
Say it soft and it’s almost like praying...Maria
(from “Maria” Westside Story)
A memorial service on the First Anniversary of the death of Maria Guevara, founder of Vallejo Together, will be held on Friday, May 7, 2021. Her immediate family has planned the service and due to COVID restrictions, only 100 guests may physically attend. May the scores of friends and partners that make up her Vallejo Together Family be reminded of her loving presence among us and the life she gave our community. Her spirit inspires the work we do and transforms people and situations beyond our control. She is always with us; always smiling.
She is now in the embrace of God’s Grace…. “All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word….MARIA” (from “Maria” Westside Story)
Please check back to this site later in May, where we will post images, video and memories of Maria.
"I choose to identify with the underprivileged. I choose to identify with the poor. I choose to give my life for the hungry. I choose to live for and with those who find themselves seeing life as a long and desolate corridor with no exit signs. This is the way I'm going. If it means suffering a little bit, I'm going that way. If it means sacrificing, I'm going that way. If it means dying for them, I'm going that way. Because I heard the voice saying: do something for others."
-Martin Luther King
