    To the Moore Family, Sorry for the loss of Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather. I would have loved to have come to the calling but I am a hugger and since we have to keep our distances I felt it best to be able to watch the funeral from home. What a great service and to hear everyone praising Max. Sorry I did not know him as well as I felt I know Marilyn, Dennis, Doug, & Denise but after listening to the sermon I feel I just learned what a great person he was. Yes he will be missed but he is having more fun now than any of us. God Bless. Fran
