What's there to say about Maxine...
She was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a mother, and a grandmother.
The younger generation may not know how she was when she grew up, but those are memories our parents and brothers have to share.
The other years during her struggles into the medical field and years after are the memories for the younger generation.
We all have our special moment with Maxine, those are what we need to keep close to us and in our hearts.
She may have had her moments when she drove us crazy and we wanted to scream, but those times will soon fade away and all that's left will be the good times we share.
Maxine may not be here physically with us, but she's imprinted in our hearts and will live on in our memories.
She's not gone and when it is our time to pass from this world, she'll be waiting to greet us with a smile.
So as we say goodbye to her lets try not to cry to hard but to be happy for her because that's what she will want us to do.
