The family of Max R. Kingsbury has received the following condolences.
How difficult for your family to have Max leave you so soon after Judy. I hope the thought of them rejoicing together in Heaven will bring you comfort and peace.
I am sending a donation to a mission to have Max remembered in their prayers and masses.
As a classmate of Judy's, I had the privilege of seeing Judy and Max at a reunion lunch in Rochester in June.
Chris & I were saddened to hear of Your Dad’s passing. We want to convey our sympathy and we will keep all of you in our thoughts & prayers. A couple things I will remember my cousin Max by are: His love of hunting pheasants on the farm, his photography of my Dad & Mom’s 50th Anniversary and his woodworking which he gave me some lovely pieces this past Sept. I will treasure those forever and tell my grandchildren about him. I will be giving a donation to a Hospice group here in Calgary. Love to you all, Chris & Carol Reid
