Kerry, Marisa and Michelle, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a great lady and she was a favorite of mine. She always had a smile on her face and was quick to laugh that always made me feel good. I'm sorry I couldn't be there for the funeral, but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this time. I really enjoyed the pictures you shared they bring back some great memories of our time together in the Allison clan! I love you as cousins and I hope the best for you!

My precious mama, I will miss you so. You called me your Angel in the last few months during your difficult journey and now, you are mine. I've cherished our relationship and will remember how much you loved me and all the special conversations and moments we've had... Until I see you again, hugs and kisses to you. Give daddy a hug for me.

Thanks for sharing such wonderful family pictures showing Maureen, the loving wife, mother and grandmother whom I knew so well. Her precious smile was the same from our days at Hardin-Simmons to her 80th birthday party when I last saw her. She was such a dear friend through the years. I will miss her so much. What a legacy she leaves for her children and grandchildren!
