Mae always had a smile on her face and enjoyed life. We want to tell her family and friends how much we thought of her. She and Richard's mother, Dorothy Atzenhoffer King,her were first cousins and best friends all of their lives. Blessings to Holly and Chris, and family and friends as we send our deepest sympathies.

We regret that we were unable to attend the services as we are in Red Bay, Alabama on a trip.
