Maxine, what a beautiful friend.
I first met her as a little girl when she and my grandparents were best friends with Maxine & Ham.
She made the world a much better place and served many ppl in a variety of ways.
She outlived my grandmother Marie Morris and now they will be reunited.
Our sincere apologies for your loss.. she always spoke of the love for Doug, her sweet daughter in law and grands.

Mrs Hamilton had been a customer for over 25 years and I had not heard from her lately and I had missed her. She always told me stories about the sons visits and had pictures that we would sit and look at aftyer completing work. I always made sure that the locks were all done before I left and was concerned about her remembering because she was such a sweat lady some one could take advantage of her. I was shocked to see the paper and went by the house but did not look like anyone was there. She will be deeply missed and was a great friend.
