Our family was so saddened to hear about Mrs. Maye. We lived across from her for 18 years. I would often walk over and talk with her while she was checking on her flowers. She always would talk about how much my children had grown and how she loved watching them play in the front yard. Our prayers are with Roger and the entire family.

Janet... I am so sorry to hear this. I have so many memories at your home with your Mom and the whole family. Though it was a sad time when I was there last, I enjoyed talking with your Mom about all the silly things we did when you and I were young. What a treasure of a Mom! ❤️❤️❤️

Roger, what a special lady your mom was. I loved hearing your stories about her. She taught my mom at Parkwood High and I had just shared a photo of to you of your mom in the 1963 yearbook a few weeks ago and you said you showed it to her and it brought a smile to her face.
Praying that God provides all the comfort needed for you and your entire family. What a blessed life she lived!
