    We are very sorry to hear about the passing of you dad. I know you will miss him a lot. But just remember one day you will see him and your mother, and have a great reunion.

    Uncle Max was so very special to me. I am sorry that I am unable to attend the service for him, but you all know that you are all in my thoughts. I am fortunate that I was able to be with him last Sunday. Max was a believer and I am sure he will be comforted now that he has joined Aunt Marilyn. To God we belong and to Him return.
