Max was one of the kindest persons I know. He was very caring. My prayers are with his friends and family.

It's hard to believe that from now on my trips to Texas will not include a visit with Uncle Max. I will miss him tremendously. My grandma, Nannie, loved her baby brother so much. She always spoke proudly of his kindness and generosity. I know she was glad to welcome him home.

Max and I are first cousins (my dad was Otis) and even though we only met a few times I want to extend condolences to the family. It’s always sad to lose a family member. Always dwell on the good times and happy moments to ease your pain. May God grant y’all peace in your time of sorrow.

We have you all in our prayers and our sincere sympathy in losing Max. We pray that God will grant all of Max's loved ones his divine healing comfort. Max and I are first cousins (my father was Carl) and we played together during our youth in Cooke County until his family moved to Corpus Christi. As a Master Mason he's now completed his journey to the Celestial Lodge above in heaven. We know that he's now rejoicing seeing all his loved ones that proceeded him there. We will miss him and never forget him. I deeply regret that we didn't have the opportunity to tell him goodbye properly but his legacy of life will live on through all who knew him.

Dear Max's family, thank you for sharing Max with the world, especially mine. Max was my anchor in 2008 when my dad passed away while we were serving together as Worthy Matron and Patron at the Aransas Pass #162 Order of the Eastern Star. Max, with his quiet and secure strength, stood by my side those last few months in Dad's stead and we finished the term together. Max emulates the saying "You don't have to roar to be a lion". Max' s presence alone protected the pride. I am honored for my family and I to have known Max and to have had the blessing to walk in the same time frame with this Man of Integrity. Much love and gratefulness, Venus Herndon Mills

May the Maughan and extended family know that my heart and prayers are with them during this difficult and challenging time. It’s hard to lose someone who meant so much to all of us, and even harder that we can’t all be together to say good-bye. We want you to know the Smith family, are with you in spirit—now and in the days and weeks ahead. Sending much love and prayers - Jeanne Smith
