This week, Heaven welcomed home a wonderful man.  Those of us that are lucky enough to call him Uncle Max, have fond memories of his generosity and kindness towards our grandparents, parents and ourselves.  I remember looking forward to his visits at Christmas because we knew he would be bringing us a delicious box of chocolate turtles!  Oftentimes, he would bring grandpa with him so they could be with us on Christmas Day!!  I was impressed with how he treated Grandpa with such kindness and was such an attentive son helping grandpa open his presents, fill his dinner plate, get dressed, etc.  Early in our marriage, Robert and I were lucky enough to have Uncle Max and my parents join us on a trip to Hawaii.  What a great time we had!!  I remember how fun it was for me to discover how funny Uncle Max was!  He always made me laugh.  But it was especially fun to see him sit back and watch us enjoy the land and the people that he loved and served as a missionary.  He was so proud of Hawaii and enjoyed showing it off to us and sharing stories about his time on a mission.  Family reunions were always a treat for the nieces and nephews as we put our name on a ticket and crossed our fingers that our name would be drawn out to receive one of Uncle Max's generous gifts!  I was fortunate to receive one of the trips and I will forever cherish the time that our family spent strengthing our ties as we once again enjoyed beautiful Hawaii!!!    Uncle Max always made me feel important and loved.  Every time I saw him, he would take time to ask about my health and about my family.  I remember a few times he would call me out of the blue to check on me and see how my heart was doing.  I really appreciate that!   Thank you Uncle Max!!!  You are loved and will be missed!

A long time ago friend of the family - I have always loved this bunch and spent a lot of time with them over the early years in the Preston 2nd Ward.  I could name all kinds of remembrances with different ones - would be so nice to see all of you.  Always loved to hear he and Reese sing - and Nina - she also had a beautiful voice that was seldom heard - but I heard her!   God bless all your family - Lorna Kay (Peterson) Robinson

Uncle Max,  
We will miss you!!!  BYU football won't be the same.  Hopefully, there's a giant statue of a cougar in heaven and you can save us all a spot.  As the saying goes, "meet at the cougar".  Maybe now, you can put a good word into the powers that be to help BYU win a few more games and especially beat the team up north.  Anyone who has come in contact with Uncle Max knows of his generosity and how much he gave of himself and of his money.  He and I both worked at Grant Thornton although he in Utah and I in California,and many times, people would ask if I was related to Max Almond to which I would proudly reply, yes.  He was well respected at Grant Thornton.  Although Uncle Max is physically no longer with us, we will always be connected through our thoughts and memories until that day when we meet again.  God bless you and your family.

Uncle Max you will be missed ! Uncle Max was a very generous and kind man . He was always giving wether it was a cruise or trip or every Christmas bringing the prized turtles and salted almonds , he loved to give . Uncle Max came to the hospital to see me each time I had a surgery down in slc and that always touched my heart that he would take the time to come and see me . ❤️

So sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. God sees your tears and is close to the broken-hearted. (Psalm 34:18) He promises to rid the earth of sickness, pain and even death. He will wipe away your tears. (Revelation 21:3,4)
