Karen, Kathy, Bill and families,

It was with much sadness that Pat and I noted the passing of Maxine. She was a long time friend of my Mother, Marge White. Max and Mom were stalwarts of Trinity Episcopal Church in Freeport, and attended services there as long as their health allowed. It was always nice to see Maxine coming into the church on Sunday mornings. She greeted everyone with a smile and a warm "hello".

She and my mother spent many an hour "just talking" on the phone together.

May she be at peace in our Lord's Heavenly kingdom. God bless you all.

Joyce and Pat

Dear Karen, Kathy and Bill, So sorry to read of Maxine's passing. I was just thinking of her a couple of weeks ago. She and Mom were such good friends for their entire lives. They spent many good times talking and laughing together. There was always great laughter when their "group" got together. Max, Mom, Alberta, Betty, Dolores, Bina and others are all welcoming your Mother into Heaven and are probably kidding her about being late. I have such fond memories of her from my childhood and playing at your house. I always thought you had such a wonderful, kind mother. Take comfort of your fond memories together. May Maxine rest in His eternal Kingdom and may light perpetual shine upon her. May God bless and keep you. Sincerely, Paul and Cyndee O'Malley White Sarasota, Fl
