Loved Maxine always enjoyed talking with her and hearing interesting stories. She was a jewel and had just enough
wit to look forward to seeing her. For sure she is in a better place and if all possible interviewing our LORD. She will
be missed your many.

Dynamite and family, we are so sorry about the passing of Maxine. You're in our prayers.
I am so saddened to hear that Mrs. Maxine has passed away. But, I can hear her saying, "Why are you sad? I'm with
Jesus." She was such a great friend to my Mama and was a huge encourager to me throughout my life while gro wing
up in Duck Hill. She left a huge legacy that will never be filled by anybody else.
