God Bless you, Annette

Walter: Seems like yesterday that I saw you two "pedalling" thru Whitnall Park. Thank you for all your compassion given Maxine these past difficult times. Be at peace as she is. The pain doesn't go away but with your children and Grandchildren, they form the extension for which you've strived. Pray hard--It really helps.

Dear Wally- We send you our deepest sympathy as you grieve. She fought quite the battle & you stayed right by her side throughout. She is at peace with Jesus our Savior and we pray that you find comfort and peace knowing this. May you look to all the memories you have of your many years you shared together. I think back to the many times we shared together. She will always be 'Aunt' Maxine to me & am grateful to have had her as my godmother. Love, Julie, Mark, Jacob, and Meghan Witt
