    Hi Debbie,

    I’m so sorry to read about your mom’s passing. I have only wonderfully warm memories of your mom. It is very difficult to lose a parent & I know it is especially hard hard to lose your mom – no matter how much you are expecting it. I think of you often and especially now at this sad time. Please know that both my thoughts and my prayers are with you. God bless, Kathi

    Dear Debbie, How well I remember your mother, since Kroh Brothers on 75th St! I am so sorry to know she is no longer with us in this world. Maxine was the finest woman, loving and warm yet professional to her core. And so very patient with new secretaries and inept new agents. Oh how she loved and bragged on you always! Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this time of great loss. With love and deepest sympathy, Susan Kircher
