I can remember so many good times that Mom and I had with Maxine. We love to go shopping at Leggett in Bedford. After Mom and Dad built the restaurant, Maxine worked there and we saw each other even more then. In Mama's last years Maxine would come by Oakwood Manor to visit and we would talk about old times. I know your Mom really missed Ronald and they are reunited and she will see Cheryl again...that will be a time of rejoicing. It is hard to believe she is gone. I just got an Easter card from her. Rest in peace, Maxine, with your loved ones. May the peace that only Jesus can give be with the family now. In loving remembrance,Brenda Dudley Hudson
