Linda, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Max. He and I were members of the same RCHS graduating class, and although our paths seldom crossed in all these years since graduation, I have fond memories of the days when we walked those hallowed halls. Max was never one to stand out, to be in the limelight, but he was a valued member of our class. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
