  2. I am so sorry to hear about Maxine’s passing. I was a classmate of hers in High School William James. Even though I had not seen her for a long time, I will still miss her very much…She was the “life” of our Senior Class and was always smiling. Rest iin peace Maxine..Joyce Neblett Todd

  3. My best friend, classmate, graduated together 1955. Only just learned of Mackie’s passing. She stood w/Dave at my wedding. My deepest sympathy to all the family. She’ll always be in my heart and my memory. God’s blessings on you all & hugs to Dave, jr.
