  1. Bob, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I know it has been a tough road, and have learned a lot because of her! What a shining Star! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. Dear Bob and family,
    I am so sorry to be writing you under these circumstances. I was saddened when I learned of the loss of your mother. I wish I had checked my email a day sooner as I arrived in Rochester late afternoon on Saturday, the 11th and would would have reached out to you. I Sunday, the 12th, returning home in the Hudson Valley area. It seems like only yesterday we were practicing as Fusion at your parents home in Greece and your mom was truly a wonderful, warm, strong and remarkable woman. I’m really sorry man. I had no idea she was a veteran of the Canadian Air Force. Another testament to her many incredible dimensions. I hope you’re doing okay. Much love to you, your immediate and extended family during this difficult time. Know that your mom is in her spiritual form and no carries the burdens of this earthly life and with the one who fearfully and marvelously made her. God Bless you Maxine, you and all members of your family.
    Warm Regards,

  3. Dear Bob, Jim, Donna, and Donna,
    I am very sorry to hear of your mother and mother-in-law’s passing. Maxine was truly a special lady. I fondly remember the many visits my family and I made to Rochester over the years to visit with her and your dad and all the Napier family.
    May Maxine rest in peace.
    Love from cousin Carol
