"I met Maxine for the first time about 9 years ago. I was fortunate to find her through my genealogy research. As it turned out, she was my mother's cousin. She opened her home to me and gave me a wealth of family history and photos. I'll never forget her hospitality and friendship. Condolences to the Huff family branch of my family tree."
