Maria & Caring Bridge

Welcome to the IWP Newsletter, where you can find the latest IWP news and events so you can make the most of your time in Portugal.

Dear Members:

Many of you have asked about funeral arrangements with regard to Maria. There will be a cremation and a private family service. For now, the family has suggested that if anyone cares to make a donation to Maria’s page on – it will allow the page to remain up so that people may visit and leave messages.

Going forward, I can assure you that IWP will make time to honour Maria’s life and legacy in an appropriate way. I am unsure of any particular time frame in which this may happen so I ask for your patience as we allow our environment to heal from COVID and our hearts to heal from the loss of Maria.

Thank you all.

The Executive Board
