Dearest Cyryla, and family, I am so very orry for your loss. I will always remember the twinkle that never left Max's eyes, and his chuckle as we would chat around your kitchen table. Godspeed Max, thanks for being my friend!

Dear Aunt Cyryla, Peter, Mary and Liza, my deepest sympathies. Uncle Max loved deeply, and was deeply loved. I will cherish memories of his spirit, laugher, and those twinkling eyes forever. Keeping you all deep in my heart during this very difficult time.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To my dearest sister Cyryla, Peter, Mary, Liza (and your respective loved ones): I'm so very sorry for your loss. My memories of Max go back to the early 60s. As my brother-in-law, he was very loving and kind, and treated my brother and I like his own children, always wanting the best for us--trying to guide us in the right direction--morally and spiritually. Because of Max and Cyryla, Janek and I were lucky enough to enjoy so many activities that our parents were unable to provide. Our favorites were sleepovers, swimming, skiing, ice-skating and many family vacations. Max could be disciplined, yet he really enjoyed life, had a great sense of humor, an infectious laugh, a beautiful smile and twinkling eyes. I will always be grateful for my second father. Max, may you rest in peace, knowing you will always be in our hearts.

Dear Ciocia Cyryla, Peter, Mary, Liza and Family, I am sending you love and praying for you during this extremely sad and difficult time. Uncle Max was such a special person for whom I had much respect, and he will always have a special place in my heart. Having overcome unfortunate circumstances early on in his life, Max ultimately went on to enjoy a long life filled with happiness and love. The relationship Max and Cyryla had was wonderful and beautiful, so adoring and devoted to each other. I admire how hard Max worked to be a good provider and role model for his family, and it was obvious how proud he was of his children. I will always remember his kind heart, the twinkle in his eyes, and the sound of his laughter. This good man will be missed, but it’s comforting to know his spirit will be with us always.
