We were out on the East Coast for our 45th anniversary when we received word of Maxine's passing, thus unable to attend her memorial. Maxine was always so faithful to telephone my mom (Betty) for many years, especially when Mom went into the nursing home 4 years ago. Mom would often remark that Maxine was more like a sister than a cousin. She and mom often walked together at the high school track in Nashville. Maxine was a wonderful and kind person. Our prayers and condolences to the family, as well as our love.

I didn't know Maxine well, but I know she was a treasured friend as well as cousin to my grandma, Betty (Smith) Williamson, and I'm grateful for her faithful friendship and support. As a kid, 30+ years ago now, I'd often spend a few days in Brown County with my grandparents in the summer, and on some of those days I'd drag myself out of bed in time to go with grandma to the Brown County High School track to meet Maxine and walk with them. I always wore out quicker than they did! I'm so glad that Maxine was able to be at my grandma's funeral this past May, and I'm grateful that I got the chance to visit with her a little - mostly to thank her for being such a good friend to my grandma, but also to share my memory of those mornings at the high school track. When I told her just a couple of months ago that I wasn't sure if the two of them walked faster, or talked faster, but either way I couldn't keep up - the smile that spread across her face was priceless. It warms my heart and brings me comfort to think of the two of them reunited, no doubt walking and talking as fast as they ever did here on earth. Maxine was a special lady. Blessings on her memory and on all who love her.
