Max was an important part of my life--especially helping me understand the Bible and the Sunday morning Sunday School lessons. He always made it interesting and I looked forward to being in his class. I appreciated you, Esther, and Max making the effort to drive to Potomac so many times and the fun we had together at gatherings at the Church and the Annex. Thank you! and I know that Max will be very happy in heaven. God is probably saying, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
