Dear Annalene and family,

I am sorry that I cannot attend Max's funeral today, but I wish to express my feelings of gratitude for his and your friendship. Max was a trusted and faithful priesthood leader.

Roene and I want to send our condolences to Analene and family. Max was a person we listened to in Sunday church meetings. Besides his knowledge of human nature, he was a source of gospel truth.

Max always set a good example for Keith and I. We remember many good lessons, talks and testimonies that he gave throughout the years.

Love, Keith and Jennilyn Mauerman
