My condolences to the entire Freese family for their loss. I will always remember Aunt Mackie, my mom (Charlene Colpitts Wilson) always called her by that name, fondly. The times I visited with my grandparents she was always warm and welcoming. A beautiful lady.

Diana, Rachel, and Paul--I was very sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Maxine. Ninety-nine years, eleven great-grandchildren--wow! What a wonderful legacy she helped to create. Thinking of her reminds me of the get-togethers at Nannie and Grampie's house when we were young. My love and thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. Amy and Tim Estabrook
