I just belatedly learned about Max's death last night and was in tears writing my first try at this. I'm still trying to process. I had just spoken Max's name again among friends telling them about his influence on my career. I was a print journalism student at ASU when he encouraged me to take a week end job as a television producer in Phoenix. An unlikely turn that has led to many fulfilling years in television. I had logged onto a search engine last night to find Max to say hello after these many years. ...only to discover he is gone.
To someone I respected immensely for his uncommon intelligence, wit, humility and kindness... I'll miss you Max, and continue to think of you often.

Max,
I'm still trying to get used to the world without you in it, Max. That's not easy.
And I've kept that last voicemail message I got from you, just like I said I would. I play it back from time to time just to get that Classic Max experience, Carol and Jan laughing in the background.
I had a couple of bottles of wine you and Carol gave me many years ago. Had them both with Sidlo, the first one a couple months ago and the last one just the other night.
We got good and drunk and a bit weepy, with toasts to you and clanging glasses ... like a wake for a pirate.
God bless you.

SUCCESS - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intellingent people; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

You did it Max! You made me a better person.

Cheers!

I talked with Max at the end of his newspaper career about sailing, about editing, about hanging it up and moving on. He had a zest for life that was inspiring.
