I would like to say a few words from my heart ... During my childhood days, I always felt that Aunt Maxine possessed a very soothing presence which always made me feel so good. As I grew older, she became the role model for everything I aspired to be. It makes me happy knowing she was blessed to have had an extraordinary life with Uncle Delmar and the kids. I truly love her and will miss her dearly. My love and sympathy to Uncle Delmar and family. God Bless.

Am very saddened to hear about Aunt Maxine. I will always remember her smile and her laugh. She was always a very gracious lady. My thoughts are with you Uncle Delmar, as well as cousins Terry, Teresa, Tom, and John and extended family.

I'm very sorry for your loss!! You never know who is related in this town. I didn't know Carrie and Tiff were cousins.
