    To The Girls
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a good man. I was shocked to hear of his loss. I hadn’t heard about his illness.
    I really didn’t know his wife but please give her my sympathies also.
    Again I’m so sorry.

    The Max Bond Family
    I am so sorry for your loss. i Inspected your Dad’s work as a Inspector for the City Of Overland Park for about 33 years. Your Dad was the most respected and hard working Supt. in the construction field I ever worked with. The people that worked for him I am sure felt the same. He will be missed greatly.

    To the Bond family, we offer our most sincere condolences . Max wasn’t just my boss at one time, but a very dear friend. He taught me so much. He was a man that was respected in the construction industry. A fair man, never asked anyone to do anything that he wouldn’t do. I will miss the hunts we had together, the conversations, and his generosity. Our thoughts are with you all.

    My prayers are with you all. When I was a kid…your dad always tried to make it fun when we got together. Mom wanted you to know she loved him so very much and she wished her health was good enough to come. I remember him and Alice coming to Aunt Sues when he was in town. We’d all sit around and tell funny stories about when they were kids. Now he’s a kid again with a new body that hurts no more. I can see Aunt Edith and Uncle A greeting him with a hug and a kiss. If you need anything just call me. A listening ear or just someone to talk to…Diana 4795445358
