Condolence From: Jennifer Larson
Condolence: Hello, I did not know Max, but briefly knew his grandparents in Columbus. Donna I knew you through the Congregational Church as well as the hospital laboratory. I want you to know how sorry I am for your loss. You seemed to have a very special connection and it must be extremely hard to get through this. Wishing you peace.

Condolence: My sincere condolences to the Newlin family. It’s very difficult to cope with the loss of our loved ones. During these times we need to have heartfelt prayers and draw strength from God’s Word the Bible. John 5:28,29, Revelation 21:3,4; 2Corinthians 1:3.4; Psalms 37:29

Condolence From: Jonathan Schnieber & Family
Condolence: I've had the privilege of knowing Max since elementary school and he always had a likable, funny, genuine and empathetic personality. He always seemed to have a smile on his face as he spread good vibes everywhere he went.

I was going to look for some photos that he tagged with me in high school but his Facebook appears to have been removed so I was looking for a new outlet to find some sense of closure and it looks like this will have to do. Unfortunately, I likely won't be able to be in attendance for the funeral as I currently live in NY.

It's exceptionally tough to hear that he went out the way he did as he was just trying to spread joy while doing what he loved, riding. I'm sorry Max that we never got the opportunity to hike and fish together like we had planned as life got in the way. Wishing you a restful peace for all eternity. My condolences go out to all his family and friends.

"To live in the hearts you leave behind is not to die."

Condolence: Cheryl, Ed, and Kelsey,

I read with great sadness of Max's passing; evoking memories of shared experiences (esp. birthing). I remember Cheryl and Ed as two of the best parents ever. I cannot imagine the pain of that loss from your family, but know that there many of us sending our prayers and wishes.

Condolence From: Rosa G
Condolence: My heartfelt condolences to the family. May you find consolation in knowing that Jesus too felt grief when he lost a friend unexpectedly. Not only was Jesus moved to tears, he was also moved to restore life to Lazarus. (John 11:32-44) I hope that you can also draw upon the comfort that only God can give through His loving promises to "swallow up death forever and wipe away tears from all faces."(Isaiah 25:8) Out of mercy, compassion and love, God and His son, Jesus, will strengthen you and return Max to you. The Bible gives us hope, even .
