We will never know why things happen the way they do! We only must keep our faith and trust in the One above. Reading your comments sure made me realize what a God fearing person Maxine must be. How you 'considered her as a 'mom' I am sure made her feel so loved. These people that come into our lives sure make our life sweeter. Why can't there be more Maxines in this world?
Barbara be assured she is in my prayers as well as you are. How blessed to have another 'mom' in your life. Keep those memories of her and build on them that you will have more ahead. She would want you to emulate her life as best as you could. When you have an opportunity to be a 'mum' to someone else. I pray that God would be gentle with her and that this is only a short time of not knowing what the trouble is. I am sure thankful you got to know this lady and she you. Be considered blessed. Please keep us informed.
