Carol, Gloria, Rick and Family's,
Max, along with Grachel has been my family too since their daughter married my brother Frank. Max was the sweetest and kindest man I have ever known. He treated my girls like his own grandchildren. Due to his illness we have missed the younger Max for along time but now he is home with his Lord & we will truly miss him. May God help heal your hearts and help Grachel and all of you through this time of loss.
Love You All,
Peggy Adcox
