  2. Maurine, so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing we will be thinking of you in the hard days ahead. God bless you.

  3. Dearest Maurine, Raymond, Christine, Bernice and Beth I had the pleasure of being an adopted member of your family and you always treated both myself and Kaitlyn with the love that a family shares. I could never tell you how sorry I am that you have to go through this but as your mother always told me no matter what her family had both love and loyalty. I learned that from each of you but mostly from her as she treated me like one of her little ducklings. I am a better person for knowing her and I will never forget our talks…never forgetting the love she had for everyone, especially all of you (including all of her brother’s and sister’s). She is with all of her loved one’s that were waiting for her and believe me as you already know she’s at peace. I know that none of this help’s what you’re feeling now…you’re all in my thoughts and prayers. Love Always Pamela C.
