    I have only just learned of "Mr. Max's" passing. So many memories flooded me, but the one thing that stands out is how truly kind he was to me. Helping me realize the beginnings of my dreams to jump horses. Letting me ride many of the families own horses and then helping me with my own first horse. I carry many, many wonderful memories of the whole family; of growing up with them, and during a very different time in "jumper land". I still think of him often; as well as the rest of the family. What more can we ask for, than to be remembered, and remembered well. Thanks for the memories!
