My sympathy to the family of Max Hebb.  He was always polite and pleasant to be around.
Cherish your memories.

But rather openings where our loved ones,
Shine down to let us know they are happy."

In all my years as sheriff, I have to say that Max Hebb was one of the kindest men I had ever met. He was always polite to me and we never had a cross word. May he rest in peace. Prayers for his entire family during this time of grief and prayers of comfort for his wife and chidlren.
