My friend
Always energetic, kind, friendly
eXtra special and always in my heart

I remember, in second grade, when Max and I wrote a book together and when we did a report on coins with another classmate. Mr. Gibson encouraged us to get up and read it in front of the entire school. Max and I had so much fun together. Max will always live on in my memory.

For the last two years, I have participated in jump rope for heart and have done it in honor of Max. I did it because he was always active and I wanted to honor him that way. I know, my buddy Max was watching the event the entire time and jumping with me in the clouds.
