Our thoughts and prayers are with your families today. Maurine was a kind and beautiful lady at all times. She took me under her wing many years ago when I began working at IRS in downtown Phoenix. One of our first holidays (Thanksgiving or Christmas), she invited me to dinner because Dennis was working and we had no family in Az. In the midst of her dinner preparations, she drove to South Phoenix to pick me up and take me back to her home on Maryland Avenue. because i didn't drive. I enjoyed many lunches with her at IRS and we shared many books with one another.
