Maxine and her husband children are lifetime friends of my family. Terry and Jewell are likely my oldest friends. It is always sad to see a generation pass from us, and Maxine was the last of our four parents to leave us. This is very sad to learn, but the fact that we have been friends for 70 years is truly a gift. RIP, Maxine, and thank you and Jack for leading my parents back to faith in Jesus Christ so we have a blessed hope of seeing one another again in God's beautiful heaven. I'll always cherish these memories. Rev. & Mrs. (Diana Luckey) Gish.
