Our Max passed away in the wee hours before dawn this morning, peacefully in his sleep. His heart condition had steadily worn him down over the past year, and the last week saw him preparing us for his leaving -- as much as you can ever be prepared for the loss of a loved family member.
Everyone who knew him, please remember him as the warm welcoming funny boy he was most of his life. He was always glad to see you when you visited. We'll hold him in our hearts forever.
Good night, Max, my big glorious baby boy.
