Susie and Paul,

I am sorry to hear about your mother Susie. I never met her but I'm sure she was a wonderful person just like you were in school. I left Fountain City in 1971 and went into the Air Force. I returned shortly 5 years ago to arrange my mothers funeral Joan Rodgers. May God bless you both.

I had the pleasure of meeting your Mother a few years ago. She had been taking care of my Grandfather (Cleo Dull) and I appreciated her very much and the olpd family pictures she gave me. I had the pleasure of taking her out for breakfast occasionally and loved listening to her stories.  She will be Greatly missed.  John Dull

Dear Susie and Paul and families.

I feel so far away during this trying time.  All of you know how much Maxine meant to all of us at the apartments.  She will really be missed by all of us, but we will remember her special smile and of course her wonderful wit.  She was a very special friend.  I'm sorry I'm not there for the memorial services, but you know I'm there in heart, thought and prayers.
