max you will be missed! my heart is so heavy today. the work you have done for the last 20 some years in houston on behalf of the kids and families have last a lasting affect on so many. i remember the first time i met you over 10 years ago at a hotel in philly at the kingdomworks conference. i was a young punk, but you always treated me with great respect. thank you for the long talks into the night and giving us urban youth workers someone to look up to. peace.
