I thought of you, Maureen and Horace so many times since I moved from Baytown
in 1998. I hoped that Maureen was healthy and well because I enjoyed working with her so much at Gibson's. She always brought wonderful desserts and shared with us all and was an excellent employee and fun to work with. I pray for your
family that you will always share your memories of her with others. God Bless you,
Vicki Harmon-Coker, Livingston, Tx.
