    I went to Max's Journal here:

    http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/maxlacewell

    No pic posted yet on his journal, but I am sure there will be one soon of him in his journal.

    I missed a great event, but it was a success!!!

    Awesome job, Cheryl and Phyllis and to the rest of the volunteers in-state and out-of-state...
