  1. A moving, sad, and celebratory tribute to Maxine. It brought Maxine back for me.

    Thank you Maxine for for the wonderful memories and for having lived your life so fully, so generously, so kindly and joyously.

    A beautiful person.

    I feel privileged to have known you, Max, and will always hold close our fun and poignant times together, in Feldenkrais, and in your lovely backyard picking cumquats. You are with me every time I pick my own cumquats and make marmalade to your recipe.

  2. A beautiful service and celebration of a life well lived. You will be greatly missed Max but in our hearts and thoughts forever.

  3. Hi Graeme and family
    It was a beautiful send off for Maxine and the family gave a lovely picture of her with their talks, poems and photos.
    We especially enjoyed hearing Maxine speak about how she felt on being given that awful diagnosis. What a brave woman. Sorry we didn’t get to know her at walkimg group before she was ill.
    Love Jenifef and Martin

  4. Rest in peace, Maxine. Thank-you for the good times we had together, and thank-you for being a wonderful mother to Marcus and Andrew.


  5. Dear Graeme, Andrew, Marcus and Maxine’s sisters and brothers

    What a gentle and touching celebration of Max’s life. Thank you for sharing the opportunity to join online. The music, photos, reflections and the wonderful videos that she was part of gave a strong sense of the things in life that Max loved and the impact of her generosity in sharing optimism about the life she was determined to lead was beautiful.

    Sending much love to all and especially Graeme XX

  7. Hi Graeme and family, that was a beautiful service and we especially enjoyed hearing Maxine speaking about what it is like to be diagnosed with dementia. What a brave woman, wish we had had her in the walking group before she was ill. She seemed a lovely fun person. Love Martin and Jennifer

  8. What a beautiful celebration of Max’s life!
    Thank you for sharing and thank you Graeme for being so instrumental in your advocacy work for people living with Younger Onset Dementia (YOD). My deepest condolences to the family. It was a pleasure meeting Max and further motivating me to make positive changes in the support of other people living with YOD. How very moving.
    With love and sympathy,

  9. Dear Graeme and family
    I’m so saddened to hear of Maxine’s passing. I did the Feldenkrais training with Maxine over 20 years ago. I remember her amazing care and love for the people in her life, both her own family and in the Feldenkrais community. I can see her generous smile and hear her quick humour. There were 5 of us born in 1959, Maxine being one of them, in the training and we all turned 40 during that time and had a celebration of the ’59ers.
    Maxine was special, I sensed that in the times I saw her in the intervening years.
    Thinking of you. Warm regards, Cassandra Morrow.
