I have just now come across this "Guest Book." We flew in for Rex's funeral in Akron back then. We have been good friends of the Humbards since 1974. Our fondest memories, were when they all moved to California. We would visit their homes, Jr.'s and Rex's up in Pacific Grove, several times. They would come and visit our home up in Lake Arrowhead. We adored them. Maude Aimee loved my husband Jack, so much. I can still hear her calling out to him, in her special and unique tone. I loved her her spunk, her wit. Witnessing her and Rex in conversation...was soo much fun. Memories of flying in their private jet to NYC. Rex introducing us, the Stemples, and his staff that was present, to the entire Madison Square Gardens in 1979. Johnny and June Cash were the guest singers. Maude Aimee loved and showed off a lot, the huge brass bed the Cashes gave her. Jack flew with them to Chili, to Rio. Those were grand days. We all (former staff) have remained close throughout the years. All of us deeply connected to the Ministry of The Humbards. They were the sweetest people and family we ever knew. Sooo many memories.
Maude Aimee keeping a Christmas tree up all year long. She had her private bathroom on their plane done in all mirrors, light switches, drawers and counters, and walls. It was so Maude Aimee, and I loved it. They had just moved into their Florida home, and boxes were open everywhere. It was so funny, Maude Aimee's phone rang, and we all went nuts, trying to find the phone for her, as it was buried. Wrapping paper was flying everywhere as we all scrambled to find it. I have many funny memories with them.
Rex's words and phrases, I have quoted all my life to my children, as I raised them, and now to my granddaughters. Rex will always live on. Maude Aimee, we love you sooo much. You are kept under His wing. God Bless all the Humbards. They know we love them all. I still use often....You Are Loved !! Rex's "branding" logo !!! So Rex and Maude Aimee....."You Are Loved." The best part of our lives...were when we were with you.
