Mrs. Maxey, I am sorry to hear of Mr. Maxey's passing. I remember many stories from my parents (Bob & Joyce Geddings) of the good times you all had together through the Provost Guard and their many activities. They always spoke fondly of you and enjoyed the times you had together. You are in my prayers. Sherri Morris (daughter of Bob & Joyce Geddings)
