Friendship is a gift from God! These are my six words today.
We are so very thankful for our 30 year friendship with Max... who went to be with Jesus recently. We will miss his dark twinkling eyes, and his wonderful smile and great sense of humor. He had a zest for life!
We enjoyed vacationing with he and his wife Toni and have done a lot of fun things together over the years. And we also love his daughters Julie and Kerri and their husbands Jason and Bob...and his little grandson Ethan! They feel like part of our family.
These kinds of friendships seem few-and-far between, and we will always treasure the years we enjoyed with Max and his family. We will continue to be a part of his family's lives and we will meet up with him in heaven before too long.
Friendship is indeed a gift from God and we are thankful. We love you Max!
