I remember Maxine well. My very first girl friend. Maybe 5th grade? lasted all of a couple of weeks. She tore up my picture and her Mother made her tape it back toghter. LOL 

Ran into to her on Facebook after all these years. Such a Very Sweet person. Always Positive. Enjoyed our time on FB and chats on the phone. She will be sincerely missed. Had plans to go see her. But it never worked out on this end. I regret that.
