Condolence From: Tommy Shaverr
Condolence: I was so fortunate to meet Mrs. Bell at the Opening Reception of John Bell's Art at the RAM. I told her I wanted to order some prints, she said call me. A few days later I called her left a message and she called me back. I told her the 2 prints I wanted to order and she kept saying "and what else did you like." So I told her the 2 I wanted the most and 4 more. I think I may have told her I like them all. But anyway she said I am going to make a gift of these to you. And I was speechless, she said put your money to having them framed. I am sure I don't have to tell you what an Angel she was here on earth. For now she is an Angel in Heaven! And I will be reminded of Maxine and John Bell for the rest of my life.

Condolence: Maxine and I went to school together at Charleston High. Several of our classmates and I had lunch with her this past summer; I didn't realize it would be the last time I would see her. She was a talented, successful ,and sweet woman. My condolences to Lisa and her family.

Condolence From: Marie & Steve Landis
Condolence: Lisa, you and your family have our greatest sympathy. You have no reason to feel sad. Maxie is with Johnny B. dancing and watching all the beautiful sights Heaven has to offer. The only major drawback of this situation would be that if Johnny B. wanted to capture this whole homecoming picture, he would need a very large canvas. Our love and prayers always, Aunt Marie and Uncle Steve.
