    it’s with sadness in my heart to hear of the loss of my dear and loving friend Miss Maude. She was a very sweet and loving woman to be around here at the PACE program. She was on my team when she started in our program and she was the most loving and caring woman. I will miss my friend dearly. May GOD continue to give you all peace and understanding during this time.

    I would like to send my deepest condolences to the Lee family on the lost of Mrs. Maude Lee.
    Growing up, Mrs. Lee was often a familiar presence in our family and at our home. I will be forever grateful for those delicious Bisquick homemade biscuits she would make.
    My family and I will keep the Lee family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
