We will all miss Maxine. She was a sweet happy lady. I have many happy memories of her at the reunions. One of the best was when she came to the motel where we were staying and yelled out " ok, girls let us in", only to hear this male voice say " no girls in here but come on in" uh oh wrong room. She did find us and we had a great laugh. Praying for comfort and peace for Chastain and family.
