    My deepest sympathies to the whole family. Maureen was a wonderful friend and like a second mother to me. Especially for letting me stay with her as I moved to Atlanta. She was a special person and I’ll miss her. May she rest in peace.

      Mom and I first met so many years ago when she opened the door to her car and gave me a ride as I was walking from school. Over the subsequent 50+ years she embraced and loved me as a son. I am forever thankful and know that I have been BLESSED by her graciousness and love 🙏 “I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU MOM” ❤️

        Ohhhh Charlie! You were so constant in her life and she loved you to pieces! Thank you for visiting her these last 2 years and most of all, thank you for praying over her with me & letting her know it was “OK” to go on to heaven to be with her parents & my dad.
        I will always love you ❤️
