"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 59
The quilt square you see that has the bold letters M A X is exactly everything Max was, bold and ready for life! He passed January 2, 2014 from a Heroin Overdose. He was so much more than his disease. He was beautiful, successful, kind, generous, and lit up any room that he entered. When he was in conversation with you, you felt you were the only one in the room that had his immediate attention and focus. He made everyone he met feel wonderful about themselves and always shook a hand or gave a warm embrace of love. If you met him, you would have liked him and probably would never forget him. I hope you don’t forget him now. He was able to donate his kidneys to 2 individuals.
We have set up a Memorial Scholarship in Max’s name at Recovery Revolution where we are able to help individuals who are in active recovery. We participate with the Walk for A Health Community every year and raise funds to help support the memorial scholarship.
We all miss him tremendously and many conversations revolve around sharing memories, laughter and tears.
The quilt square was made from one of Max’s flannel shirts. He loved music, he loved life, he had so much love for everyone. ~Max’s Mom
He said, “if ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together …
there is something you must already remember. You are braver
than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart … I’ll always be
with you. Winnie the Pooh
