RIP - Max

A dear friend of our family passed last night in a motorcycle accident. I don't know the details of the accident but he died in surgery around midnight.

His name was Max Torres, he was a pastor at our church and someone I've known for more than 30 years. He leaves behind a wife and four sons, the youngest in his teens. He was originally from Brady, Texas.

He was a great guy and spent much time reaching out to kids that others had given up on as hopeless. Sometimes even I would shake my head and wonder what he could see in some of these guys but always had a trusting and loving heart.

Max had ridden all of his life and was a really cautious rider. We rode together years ago and I know he will be missed by those who loved him. Today I know Max is in a better place.
