  7. Recently, for some reason Miss Maxine had come to my mind, and I had wondered about her. I remember her so well and how kind and gracious she always was. Barbara and I were in the same grade, and Miss Maxine and all the kids were at the Methodist Church at Kilmichael more than regularly. I especially remember her as the adult leader of our MYF group. May she now and forever be in God’s presence enjoying her many well-deserved heavenly rewards.
