    I will miss Maxine terribly!!! She was such a joy and complete pleasure to care for. I always looked forward to seeing her in the office. Her wit and humor always made me smile. My heart hurts even though I know it was Maxine’s time to visit our Lord and Savior. She was the kind of person that makes me want to be a better person and nurse so thank you for that. Maxine has left an indelible mark on my heart!!!! May you all find peace and comfort knowing the impression she made!!!! Love always, Bonnie Thurlow

    Dear Fred, Dave, Greg and families,

    I hope you know how much we Fritz kids, and our parents loved Maxine all these many years. What a sweet, smart and humorous soul she was. It was always such a loving and outragiously delightful time when we got together. The gatherings of the dinner group were legendary in their hilarity and good fellowship.

    Remember the good times, and stay in touch.
