Classmate, friend , a special lady. We had so much in common as we grew up in the same community. Off springs of hard working farmers. We were poor and didn't know it. But we were rich in the ways that matter. This beautiful lady has remained a very good and loyal friend for over sixty years. During our annual class reunions she and my wife became close friends. We both loved Maxine and shall cherish our memories forever .
