My thoughts are with you at this time. I can remember having a few good laughs with Maxine in the past. She was truly a remarkable lady. I am sure you have many, many fond memories. Keep them near your heart.
Thinking of you all during this difficult time. Although I didn’t get the pleasure of meeting Maxine, I heard many wonderful things about her. I am certain she will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
I will always have great memories visiting you in Nova Scotia When I was growing up. That I will never forget. As well as the times you came to visit in ontario. You were a great women and will be sadly missed by all of us. love ya gramma…. rest in peace.

Our deepest sorrow for the family. We were only privledged to meet a couple of times and both were so memorable. We will miss her. Our prayers are with you.
My brother Murray spoke of how you and Gary meant so much to him. He was closer to you two than anyone back home. He would have been broken hearted to hear this sad news. I speak for him as he has been gone for 5 years now but his words are still clear about Maxine and Gary.
