Maxine was a special lady. Heaven has gained a special angel. She will be missed but someday we will see her again. We are praying for God to give the family comfort during this time.

My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Eleanor. I know she will be dearly missed. It is during these times that the bible can bring you much comfort. Scriptures such as Revelation 21:3-4 and John 5:28-29 can give us hope for an end to our enemy death but also hope that we will see our loved ones again. May these scriptures give you a new hope and comfort.
