To Robert and Vickie, and all of Maxine's family I'm sorry for the loss of your Mother. She was a wonderful woman praying a Mother who loved all her children, grandchildren and greats. She showed her love in word and action. I remember her being there for my mother many years ago when Daddy died. You never forget things like that. She was your precious treasure and now she is shining brightly in Heaven and receiving her rewards. My prayers for you all for Peace and comfort.
