    To my lovely partner in crime. I knew that this was not going to be easy losing you but boy it is so hard. Our house is just not the same with you not being there. Some many times I come home and go to your room to say Hello and then remember half way there that you are not there. I love all the times we had together and all the thinks you have tought me like this past Christmas how to make fried chicken. You were and will always be the best Mother in Law and partner in crime. I will also remember to put my best clothes (PJ’s) on after work as you told me. Love you so much and you will forever have a very special place in my heart. Until we see each other again love you Mom❤❤❤

    Me Janet being next to the youngest sibling looked up to Sister Maxine as my second mother. She had to set me straight a few times for which I was great full. Hated when she moved so far away from home. So very thankful for her son Benny and Robin for taking such good care of her. Maxine always praised them and said she always had the best of care. ❤️ Love and miss you Sis.
