Max was the sweetest lady. We will forever remember her quiet charm and welcoming smile. We met her in Apache Junction while visiting my Dad, Lee Thompson, and Max's sister, Evelyn. Max always made us feel like we were special to her. There is a special place in our hearts just for Max. Our heartfelt sympathy to her extended family. Jim and Carolyn Staker
