It's saddening to hear of the loss of Max. It's true that he helped a lot of people in his lifetime. And he was a pillar of the church as a longtime elder.

Max treated me a large number of times for my injuries sustained from farmwork and athletics. I appreciate that. And I was tickled to see him still doing chiropractic work at the age of 91. Very few stay with their profession at that age.

My best to the family. The family can be proud of him.

My condolences to the family. I would love to share some bible scriptures that can bring you comfort at this time and a wonderful hope of seeing your love one again. Acts 24:15” There is going to be a resurrection “. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4” Comfort when loved ones die” Hebrews 2:15” Freedom from morbid fear of death” John 5:28,29” A real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones”. God is the Creator of life. The Bible calls Jehovah God “the source of life” (Psalms 36:9; Acts 17:24,25) The One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. Jehovah hates death, he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy, to undo death by means of the resurrection. He yearns to bring back those who are in his memory and to see them live on earth again-Job 14:14,15.
