Ike, Cookie, Linda-and families: I am so very sorry for your loss! she was an amazing woman. I always remember how Aunt Maxine and Uncle Oscar accepted us as part of the family when Dad married Corene. She always welcomed us into her home and we always felt welcome. My kids remember her being so caring and loving when they were little and we came to Kansas. She will be missed by all of us. Our prayers are with you all!

Dick and Glenda
