Rick & Julie,
So sorry for the loss of your mom. I haven’t seen her since we were kids but I remember her as always being cool with us when we came over to play. Please know that you guys are always in my thoughts.
It was with great sadness to read of the passing of Maxine. Although It”S been over fifty years since I have seen her. We were teen=age friends and I have never forgotten her. She was a most beautiful girl and I had a hugh crush on her when I was fifteen. I thank God that she was a Christian and we will meet again some day. Praying for the family.
So sorry to hear, Julie and family you have my sympathies… She was a good neighbor to me for many years..
Rick, Julie,and grandchildren and extended family,
This is a time when we ask “Why” It is a mystery question of life. I ask our Father God to help all with the loss of this loved one in the days to come, she will always be with you, hold unto those precious memories and share them now and then so those who did not know her will know her through you. She has gone to another life beyond this world and although we loved her deeply we could not keep her as long as we wanted, God saw she was geting tired and a cure was not to be. He only takes the best and he picked her to join his angel band. Love you my Aunt Maxine. your niece Diana Wright Hicks.
