  1. I will always remember Maxie for being the nicest Paterson. He always had a joke to tell to make you smile, he loved to pick on any and everyone. He was the one who made you laugh and feel loved when you was around him. Maxie rolled his own cigarettes for as long as I can remember, that’s how I tell my uncles who are deaf who I am talking about. Just a couple of things I remember most. I always loved visiting Uncle Maxie and Aunt Lois’ house and they always loved for me to be there ! I will hold on to these memories ! I’m so glad you are reunited with Aunt Lois but you will be greatly missed, Love always and forever. Your “SUDIEPOO”(my nickname from Maxie)

  2. Sorry to hear about my great-uncle but now I know he with his mom, brothers and sisters and nephews and sisters. He was a good man and he always reminded me of my grandpa (his brother) always laughing and doesn’t matter where you at he always knew you. Never met a stranger.
