Maxie and George lived next door to me and my folks for years. After my dad, Dr. Lewis passed away Maxie was ever so helpful at our house before and after dad's funeral services. It was then that she recalled a pleasantry with all of us of how it had tickled her one day to see Dr.Lewis in his overalls walking down the driveway and stopping every 10 feet or so to plant new pine tree saplings along that drive. She remembered his saying that it was up to the Lord now for their future cause he'd given em a good start. BTW, she had been one of my dad's Gyn patients.

I remember Ms Overbey and Mr. George when we still lived on McDowell Park Circle. They lived in our back yard and we would play on the woods behind their house. They were great people. Sorry for your loss!
