I have many memories of Max but one that will stay with me forever and a good lesson for us all...
I took Max to a doctors appointment. He had a scheduled appointment and it should have taken under an hour. The waiting office was packed full. So much so that there were no seats left. A younger gentleman offered Max his seat but Max declined and said he was fine sitting on his walker. The plan was for me to drop him off and pick him up when he was done. As I left him, he was chatting with the other patients that were also waiting. As we all know, Max had a knack for funny stories and making friends. Fast forward to two hours later, I drove over to check and see if he was ready to go. I walked into the waiting room and he cheerfully said he had not yet been seen. His demeanor was so calm and he was not at all bothered by the wait. I left and came back two additional hours later. He was finally ready after a 4 hour wait. We got into the car and I told him how impressed I was with him being so easy going about the long wait. He shrugged it off like it was not a big deal and that he had no place to be. Not only was he so patient, but he was enjoying meeting people and talking with them. Max loved people and loved making people laugh. I did a lot of laughing with Max. I'll miss you Max!
