Family & Friends of Gussie Maynard,
My condolences and sincere sympathy. Until recently, I don't recall
Gussie ever missing a show when I was performing at Parkview. Always
with a smile, jovial and with a positive conversation, she and her buddies
always occupied their reserved space for the show. May every consolation
and blessing be granted to each of you in your deep sorrow.
