    Maurine was a very special lady. She was always friendly and eager to do for others. So glad to have known her for the time that she worked at Rosedale Baptist Church.

    I loved seeing all of the old pictures. My mother told me, that the two of them became best friends in eighth grade. They had such a wonderful loving friendship for 85 years. She was a great lady.
