    Maxine was very special to me in so many ways. She was my “second mom,” and I spent many hours in her home with her and her family. She left a mark on my life and helped mold me into the person I am today. Although I grieve her loss, I know that she finished her course and was faithful to the end, and today she is rejoicing in the presence of the Lord. I loved her dearly. May God comfort the family and give each of you the strength you need for the journey ahead. We love you all dearly, and you will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
