My deepest sympathy in the loss of your amazing mom! I enjoyed my years working with Maxine on the Butn/ Trauma unit and she became a dear friend. We had fun playing little pranks on each other! I will never look at an Easter peep or hear the song Sweet Caroline without thinking of her. Even when I visited her at Mercy 2 weeks ago; she still made me laugh by making me “test” her pork chop before she would eat it. She will be missed!
