To the family of Maxine…I am so sorry for your loss. She was a very nice person with a terrific personality. Rest in the fact that she is now with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The memories you have in your heart will bring you great comfort in the days ahead. I have known Maxine from her days in Shadyside, Riverview Bible Church, etc. Karen was my little “sidekick” at Riverview and a special girl. I always felt like a second “mom” to Karen. Maxine would want you to pick up where she left off Karen…you are now the leader of your family. Love, Sue Junkins
