Tammy and family,
Our condolences for your loss of Maxine. She was a beautiful and kind lady and always had a smile. May your memories of her give you peace.

Dear Tammy,
I had lunch with Alicia recently and we were reminiscing and catching up about family, friends, and sharing updates about the Class of '77. Your name came up of course but neither of us had any information on your whereabouts, other than Franklin recently told me you were in the Tidewater area. So, I decided to "Google" you and that is when I discovered your mother's obituary. Please accept my condolences. I watched the Keepsake video and it is clear that your mom was loved and that your family has many happy memories to help ease the pain. My mother passed away two years ago and I still have moments when I want to tell her something or ask a question only she could answer.
I would love to hear from you. If you would like, please send me an e-mail at: And again, I am so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. I know you, Allen, and the grandchildren will miss her very much.
