  1. Donna and Scott —

    You have my sympathy in the passing of your mother.

    My mother thought of Maxine as a sister and talked to us a lot about the good times they had as kids.

    I always thought Maxine was the sweetest lady and I always enjoyed seeing her smiling face. She will be missed, and I know most especially by you and Angela and Nathan.

    My father-in-law just passed away the day after Thanksgiving so I understand how difficult it is to lose your loved one during the holidays. I will pray for you to be comforted by God’s love.

    Helen (Jackie Ladage’s daughter)
