Sonia, Saddened by the news of your beloved Max passing. You always talked about him in such loving terms. He was your loving sidekick, your quiet soul, and always brought a smile to your face when you talked about him. With the Covid19 pandemic, I have only been to outside events with very few people and all wearing masks. I will call you to find out what HiltonFH has arranged, so I may see you. I will call you at home. Nancy

Lynne and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I enjoyed chats with your dad at the post office for many years and will remember him fondly.

I will miss Mr. Maxwell very much. He was always cheerful and loved life. He never missed an opportunity to mention his beautiful wife, who he loved very much.

Dear Sonia: I am saddened by Max's passing. I enjoyed many conversations with him during the STEP retreats and events at my home where he faithfully accompanied you, and you shared him with the rest of us. I'll remember his twinkling eyes and calm voice, sharing his wisdom on the important simple things of life, like cutting firewood and growing a vegetable garden. You must miss him deeply, and I offer my sincere condolences.
