"Becky and family- I knew of Max?s death at the time. I am glad that you are now able to have his service. I remember watching him in Nebraska City back in 1953 when I would come to your house to visit. A little boy in a house full of girls, and dad- interesting at times! Time does fly. Gwen Grove Howard"
