  2. To the Williamson Family:

    I was sad to here about Maxine’s passing. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I used to live on Reed St. close to Academy St. Maxine’s dad, Frank, worked for Swannanoa Cleaners and I used to pick up laundry on the weekends. He paid me the grand some of $2.00 for a whole day’s work. I believe I must have been about fourteen or fifteen years old. The Alexanders’ were great people.

    Maxine was good to us kids who lived around the neighborhood. I suppose their house is still there. It would be below or behind Bobby Ingle’s first store on H’ville Road.
