Wish I could come and say goodbye. Mae was my great-aunt. She taught me good health practices and helped me out as an adult in a moment of crisis. I'll never forget her lessons. I am grateful for her relationship with my mother, who needed a mother figure after her own mom passed. Mae will be missed. -- Tommy Smith
We will miss Mae so much. She was a firecracker, filled with love and hugs to share with everyone. A donation has been made in her name to the Congo Relief Mission. Hopefully Father Gaston can continue his missionary work knowing that Mae is always watching! With Love, Pam, Carole, Brady, Joseph, Cathy, Jim, Kyle, Matt, Lynne, Michele
OH how sad! I am so sorry for your loss! Mae was like an aunt to me and always such a joy in my heart! God has a very special angel! Wish I had gotten to see her in these past few years. Girls, know I loved your mother like my own. She was Mom's best friend forever. They shared so much - many confidences and most of all unconditional love. I feel your pain in her loss.
