Our prayers are with you all and we're sorry we aren't able to be there in person to offer our condolences. Uncle Max was a great man and I'm so happy that Cindy was able to meet him when we were home last year. We had a really good chat with Uncle Max and I remember he was joking with us and had us laughing, which is something I'll always remember. - Todd & Cindy
