We first joined 2nd Presbyterian and "ran into" Max pretty much from the get- go. He never failed to say hi to me and give my family hugs. Our children, Cole and Jillian joined youth group in part for how they saw him engage with our family. Yes-his HUGE smile and infectious personality. We are saddened and will miss him
God Bless you, Nicole and Lakshman and Ricky. Our hearts ache for your loss. What a blessing from God to be entrusted with providing care for His child.
Dear Connie, Larry and family. I am so sorry for your loss. The loss of a loved one is always so emotional but to lose someone so young and bright is so hard. May God be with you all and help you thru this tender time. Love and prayers for all.
Nicole and family, I will miss Max's big smile and many surprising talents. My enduring memory will be a meal we ate at a Cuban restaurant in Tampa, with a young Max confidently ordering and downing a cup of "coffee con leche," much to the surprise of our server. We're thinking of the good times we spent with him and all of you.
