Mae has been my neighbor down here in Deerfieldfor a little more than 10 yrs. She was a wonderful lady with endless energy. Her and Tim arriving was our signal that our cold front was on it's way. She has been missed since she moved to mid-state. I will always think of her and Tim when I look at the pool. May God keep you in the palm of his hand and give you peace
