I would like to express my deepest condolences to Maybelle’s sons, Mike, Greg and Derek, her companion Bill and the rest of her family and to all who knew and loved her.
I want to let you know how much I appreciated your beloved Maybelle. I’ve known Maybelle for many years, since 8th grade, and have to say she is one of my favorite all time people and there are not really that many I consider in that category. When I was going through a separation and living with my mother, Marion Reed, she very kindly offered to care for my daughter, Teresa, during that time. I can still see her doing her laundry, with a wringer washer at that little house on the Underwood Road, when I would pick Teresa up after work. Now I’m very sorry to say they are both gone. My biggest wish is that I had been able to spend more time with each of them. The last time in a long time I spoke to Maybelle was shortly after Shelby passed. My condolences to all of you. To Bill who has been such a loving support for her and to the sons who should remember she loved you all.
