    In honor of a wonderful cousin that I only wish we could have spent more time with, I would like to say on behalf of my sibling and I that although we couldn’t be there since we were all so many miles apart our
    love and thoughts of Maxine and all of her sisters and family was still there and we always tried to find out how Maxine and her siblings were. Uncle Ed and Aunt Hazel were always thought of and talked about with much love.
    While the reunion of everyone down here didn’t happen, it’s great to know this is not goodbye but we will
    meet in Heaven.
    Sherrell and I are the last of our family, but we loved Maxine and the whole family and send our love and condolences to her family.

    She and I were classmates. There was never an unkind word spoken. Her smile and personality always radiated a calm sweet spirit. She will be remembered in the hearts of all who knew and loved her. May God continue to give comfort and peace to her loved ones.

    I’m sorry to hear of Maxine’s passing from this world. I worked with her at Goodman, and we shared lots of memories of our families during that time. She loved each of her family members dearly and talked often of them. She and I had kept in touch since leaving Goodman, and she let me know of her health, and asked for my prayers. May God bless each of you, and give you comfort in the days ahead.

    I’m truly sorry for the loss of Maxine. We did several Art&Craft shows with her. She was a delight to be around, and we loved her laugh.
    She was an elementary classmate of mine, also. Our class will donate a book to Highland Rim Library in her name. Prayers and thoughts go to each one of you.
