Aunt Maxine, I remember the times when we used to visit. The visits during the holidays, weddings & funerals. You always welcomed us with open arms.Always had a hot meal ready for us after our long trip. Always there to catch up on old times. Yell at us kids when we were to rowdy and love us when we hurt. I will miss you but I know that we all will see you again. May God take you into his arms and please give my love to all those family members that have passed. We love you.
