Missing Max Genshaft
Today's blog post is not about buyers, it's not about sellers or even about real estate. Today, I am writing about my family in Snowmass, Colorado.
Several months ago precisesly the morning of January 18th, 2013, I received a call that my cousins Ben & Alyssa Genshaft woke up to find their youngest son Max, only 17 months, had passed away in his crib. This was more than unexpected it was absolutely a HUGE shock to them and to all of their loved ones. Max wasn't sick when he went to bed? The autopsy didn't reveal much and so they are left without a specific reason why.
My entire family and extended family were at the funeral in Aspen Colorago except for me. I had committed to a Disney Cruise vacation with my husband's family the next day. It was very difficult not to be there to support them but I thought about little Max every single day.
The entire Aspen community rallied and continues to rally around Alyssa, Ben, Sophie and Eli in an unbelievable way. Click here to read the touching article that a friend of theirs wrote for The Denver Post about Max.
Max was an adorable baby. He looked just like his big brother Eli and his daddy, my cousin Ben. The first time I met Max he was 4 months old and was such a little guy. I was visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Denver for Thanksgiving and Ben & Alyssa flew in from Columbus to spend some time with my family. I love and will always cherish this picture of us from that day. He will be forever missed!
