What a wonderful great aunt! I always loved spending time with her. She was one of the most positive, happy people I have ever known. I always remember her sending me birthday cards. She never forgot my day. I love you Aunt Maxine and I will forever miss your laugh and your smile. Heaven received a beautiful angel. ❤️😊

Anyone who knew my Mother would know what a blessing she was to me. She was always there and never judgmental. Her and Daddy's motto was "Just food for thought." Sometimes you used their "WORDS" of wisdom; other times you danced to your own tune. Their words where always wise. Thank God I had them both for the time I did. I was blessed beyond measure! For all those who shared their love and kindness for my Mommy; I thank you. Sincerely, Barbara Stanifer
