I remember the way he smelled. Like cigarettes and old spice. That my not sound wonderful, but it was it really was. I remember the he used to sing. He wasn't good at it, but he did it anyway. He always said "I love you." And proved it. The world isn't the same without him.

Lots of great memories growing up with my big brother Max. This one in particular stands out for me. While he was still in high school he bought a beautiful gold 58 Chevy with money he earned raising a couple calves and working on the farm. It was the fastest thing on four wheels back then, but it just didn't quite sound right to Max. So he took a hammer and chisel, crawled under the car and punched several holes in the muffler. After that it sounded as tough and fast as it was. Max loved that car, and I loved my big brother Max.

Max was my husband for 23 years. I loved him. He was full of adventure and I got to go places I never even dreamed of with him. He gave me two beautiful children and our grandchildren.

I'll see you in Heaven, Max.
