Maxine was the most beautiful caring person I knew. She loved to talk about her family and then I'd talk about my family she wanted to see all my knew pictures of my grandkids. She loved God so much. I loved working for her she made my morning the brites just to see her face. I will miss her and she will ALWAYS be in my heart. Dede TATOM
