Cookies for Christi - RIP Sweet Aunt Maxine

We were very saddened to receive the call from Shayne's dad last night that Aunt Maxine was called Home. She was a fabulous, wonderful, intelligent, compassionate - absolutely awesome woman! Now she's back with God and her young daughter I never had the chance to meet. I can't help but think Christi's enjoying Aunt Maxine's wonderful cookies we all always "fought" over at family get togethers. She took many of our wedding pictures for us and made all of our candle centerpieces saving us a lot of money when we had none. This total sweetheart also went to Mason's funeral with Shayne while Christi and I were in Philly.

When we went to visit with her at the beginning of the summer, it tore her up to tell us about a little girl who waits with her in the waiting room to get her radiation treatments too. Maxine said the bald headed little girl reminds her exactly of Christi, yet Aunt Maxie cried and choked through tears to tell us that. Last week, while I was at my sister's, Shayne went down to visit, held his sweet aunt's hand and was so sorry that he could not understand what she was trying to tell him. I know if there's any way she can watch after Christi, she will! God called a most wonderful woman Home. May she rest in peace until we are all united together in a cancer and pain free place called Heaven. Enjoy those great cookies, Christi! Now we are no longer racing to try to get to them before the other cousins eat them all up, you can have them all!

It saddens me that you and your family have been so ravaged by cancer. May Aunt Maxine be enjoying many no calorie cookies with Christi up in Heaven. God Bless you all.
