Dear Max and Family,
I'm so sorry to hear of Maxine's passing. I have so many fond memories growing up with your family. I remember Maxine taking me along with my cousins to swim at Lake Clair. Additionally, all the fun times my family and I spent at Max and Maxine's house for BBQs . Maxine was a warm and loving spirit. Peace, Love, and Joy

I spent several summers at Maxine's house and remembered how much she cared for the kids in her care. I will be keeping the Richardson family in my prayers in the coming days. Maxine was a kind soul.
