To the family of Mae Reichow,
I hadn't seen Mae for a long time but I thought of her all the time and she was my best friend. Sorry about your loss. I didn't even know she had passed away or I would of been to her funeral. You are in my prayers. I know what you are going through as I lost my husband about a year and a half ago. I will always remember Mae. She was always there to help and give me advice when I needed it . You have my sympathy.
