Patsy and Family,
I am so glad that we stayed in touch these last almost 50 years. Will never forget your trip to San Antonio to make sure I was saved and on a boat on the river no less! Loved Maury’s sense of humor!!! Most of all, Patsy, your and Maury’s Christian faith is an example to us all.

Jennifer Potter says:

The entire clinic is going to miss Maury deeply. He was always such a joy to be around and made each of us smile and laugh every time he was near. Even at times when he felt unwell, he always showed such affection towards all of us and made everyone feel as loved and as special as he was. It was such an honor and a gift to have been part of his life.

I started to write all sorts of messages to you, deleting each and every one because I realized very quickly that what’s in my heart is impossible to adequately convey on paper. I truly am so very sorry for your loss … but I must say that my heart is happy because I know that Maury is with the Lord having a glorious time … I love you and look forward to spending time with you.
Love and God Bless,
Nancy and Robert

I am so sorry for your loss, my sympathy and prayers are with you and the family.
Maury & you have been a part of my life for over 50 years and to see his love for our Lord, his family and his career are remarkable. I remember the first day he introduced you and knew he had found the love of his life. He lived his life as a Christian sharing his love of Christ with others so they would have the joy he had found, he will be remembered for so many positive deeds.
Thank you for coming to Shreveport so I could see my dear friend before he went home to be with the Lord, that smile and love of people, he never meet a stranger.
He fought the good fight and now he has a new body, no more pain. God may have a golf course in heaven we just do not know?
I will be with you in my thoughts and prayers at the visitation and services and wish I good be there physically but the body can not make the trip.
We love you
Frances, Pam & Lisa

Our years together at First Methodist Church in Carrollton brought Maury into our lives. He was a dear special man, a real charmer with everyone who knew him. We are sad that he has left us, but rejoice with him and our dear Lord Jesus that Maury is in his eternal home. God bless each and everyone who will greatly miss him.

Mary Links says:

Dear Patsy and family, I am so sorry to learn about Maury. He was such a nice person and we all had many fun times together. I will always cherish these memories. He certainly fought a long but courageous battle but now does not have to fight anymore. I know he is in a better place.

I am sorry that I am unable to come to his service tomorrow but please know my love, prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Love, Mary

My Dear Patsy:

Thank you for sharing Maury with me. Jesus knew just what I needed when He sent you and Maury into my life! I will never forget him or his smile or his silly jokes or his hugs. Most of all I will never forget how brightly the light of Jesus shown through both of you and how deeply in love you both were. I’m so thankful for the joy you both brought to my life.

Love you!
