  1. JoAnne and girls, I am so sorry for your loss. Max was a good friend to me. Joanne, I admired your marriage very much and loved hear Max talk about your family. I will never forget his story about spotting Joanne for the first time in the SWOSU student union building. Max will be dearly missed.
