Mental wellness has become something so common in young people these days. Anyone who met Max lost a friend. He was friends with young kids all the way up to grandparents. Max has been a friend of mine since our families met. One of my best memories with him is shooting the 10 point deer. We were sitting in the stand looking through the binoculars at a doe. Then about 30 seconds later we were looking at a big buck. He easily could have said I’m gonna take this one. But instead, he said, “take him”. Max seemed as happy as I did about shooting the deer. He cleaned it for me and drove it all around town to show it off with me. That’s the kind of guy Max was. I will cherish the memories I have had with him forever. The Max Foundation is going to do great things for the town of Warroad by making sure each person knows their importance.
