It appears Saturday morning God called home an Angel from labor to rest. We could go on forever talking about the many wonderful blessings Maxine has given us, but she would say let the work I’ve done speak for me. We will miss your physical presence but we will ALWAYS remember your beautiful spirit! Rest well Maxine. We all know that heaven just got a little more class.

Family of Maxine Bassett,
Please accept our condolences on the passing of Maxine. She was a very special and loving lady. I had never known her to have a bad day or anything bad to say about anyone. The last couple of weeks she had been telling me that she hadn't been feeling too well. I told her I would be praying for God to take away her pain and she told me she was willing to accept whatever way He chose. I think He chose the way she would be happiest with.
I am sure he added her to his band of Angels and gave her a leadership position.
She was a big part of the Burger King group and it won't ever be quite the same. I will never be able to look at her regular booth the same.
May God Comfort all of you in your time of loss.

Buzz...so sorry for you & your family's loss. Your Mom was always so nice and a dear friend to my Mom. Memories for me were them talking on the phone for what seemed like hours...I don't think they ever missed a night. What a trend setter she was. Loved all her matching hats & outfits. Maxine will be greatly missed. Prayers to you & your family.

Terrell…and your family…Your Mom was such a great lady and presence embodying what I believe to be the Blessing spirit….perhaps more important you have all her wonderful characteristics, a great legacy she gave us!
I am a little confused by the “Burger King” reference because my ‘old’ memory says Coach House was THE PLACE…maybe Phylis Holcumbrink or Lynda can validate?

It been many years since I’ve seen any of you but I wanted to share my sympathy to all who will now miss Maxine’s ever smiling presence..you are in my thoughts and prayers.
