When I first met Max my first thought was, wow, what a grump. But over time his sweet smile and baby blues won me over. I tried to take care of him, and instead he usually ended up watching out for me. He became a wonderful friend I am going to miss him terribly. I wish him peace from his trials in this life and hope he is finding joy on the other side. Love you Max!
