To our friends and family every where.
My Mother, Maxine Caswell went to be with the Lord today (10-27-2011)
 about 4pm after 92 years on this earth with us.
She is happy I know in the arms of the Lord and with my Dad, Quentin.
Many of you know of people I may have missed in this message and I would ask that you let them know of her passing.
A grave side service will be held in Joplin Mo this spring and the date and time will be sent out at a later time.
Please keep our family in your prayers as we work through this time.
The Lord does things in his time and not ours. She will be missed but I know she is in a better, happier place.
To God the Glory for giving her to us for this time.
(Sandra K Caswell)
