What a wonderful aunt. Always a pleasure to visit her and uncle Paul for years and then her alone since uncle Paul’s passing. I’m going to miss those visits but she was so looking forward to joining her soul mate, Paul. A true love story. I’ll miss her whit and humor and just sitting and talking with her.
John Baker says
Please except my deepest condolences for your loss of Maxine. I delivered her propane and was fortunate to chat with a very sweet lady who reminded me of my own mother. I looked forward to seeing her in the window when I arrived and always made me think of my mother (who I called right after leaving) she was my favorite customer. God bless her and all of you
