I have so many memories of this wonderful woman. Maxine was like another Mother to me for many years as I grew up. My siblings and I spent lots of time with the Rodgers family as our dads worked together. We played hard and always had a great time in the half basement. We could always find something to get into. At that time ,I was the only girl among the boys. Lunch many times consisted of Cottage cheese with celery salt, and maybe a little fruit, a favorite still. As I started to have my own family ,I would walk over to Maxine's after my Dr. appts. She always had lots of good advice for me. My own children loved Maxine and "Pappy" too. Pappy taught them about beer at an early age and how to run from one end of the bench to the other to get a sip of beer. We still talk about those days. As we grew up and became adults, Maxine and Pappy were always just a phone call away. Was great when they made the move to S.C. and the boys started to follow. What could be more fun than the Rodgers kids all together. One of my last fun memories of Maxine was taking her back to Jacksonville, FL. for a week. We shopped and spent time at the beach. Lots of laughs and giggles that week. I'm sure she's up above with Pappy and the boys looking down on all of us.
May all your memories help ease the pain of her moving on. She lived a full life and always made the best of it. Maxine make sure you and Pappy meet up with Jim and have a beer for me too. Will always remember you and how you loved us all.
