Gramma, you can't read this, but we love you so much. We will remember and speak of you life-long.

"My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation." Luke 1:46 - 50

Maxine was an extraordinary woman that loved both the Lord and her family very much. She was a very gracious women who had a zest for life. She saw something bland, saw potential in it and helped make it beautiful- that is who she was and what she did. I will miss her here, BUT, I know that she is in the Precious, Loving, Strong Arms of Jesus Christ. " I Can Only Imagine "
