Dear Jack,
I know this is a tremendous loss for you. But looking at the photos just shows the wonderful times you had together and great memories you can cherish. When I think of Max I think of her contagious laughter. She was such fun to be around. I always looked forward to seeing her. I wish you and your family comfort in the days to come.

My deepest sympathies to you and your families. I'll always remember Aunt Max's laughter and how contagious it was. I have many precious memories of traveling to Indiana with my Mom to see everyone. I know she touched many lives and will be missed.

Love,

Can't begin to tell you how much I'm going to miss you. Did not see you often but always knew you and Jackson weren't far away. It was such a joy just to sit and visit and talk about past lunches and visits. Always such a classy lady! I love you!
