We lost a very special person this holiday season. @Max was taken from this world on December 18, 2021, due to a car accident. He was truly a light in the community for years and expressed nothing but kindness to everyone he encountered. At the very young age of 10, he took on responsibilities and acts of selflessness to help others and make the server a better place. He continued this on and off for about 6 years. Even after fully stepping down, he continued to share his stories by interacting actively with the community. He was full of love and had such a kind and giving soul. He absolutely loved Mineverse, and we loved him back. We will miss him dearly. Tributes to Max in loving memory: @Malc: I was never super close with Max, but he has been a staple in the Mineverse community to me since the beginning. I’ve known him since I was 12 and he was 11 so in a way it feels like we grew up together on here. He was such a sweet and funny person to talk to, and I’m so grateful to have known him to any extent. He was so young, it’s not fair at all and it doesn’t feel real. I wish I had gotten to talk to him more recently. Much love for you Max, I miss you. @Clxrity: For Max: Dearest friend, I’m so grateful to of gotten closer to you this year. It’s rare for me to find people just like you with such a genuine heart (and an amazing sense of humor). I can’t ever thank you enough for being such a great friend and overall great person in my life and so many others. I’m beyond saddened to of lost you but forever comforted by the fact you’ll live on through everything/everyone you’ve touched & impacted. Thank you for being there for me, thank you for everything. Forever in my heart. We love you, Max. — MJ @Random: Max was one of my closest friends on Mineverse, even if we didn’t talk every day. He was my twin and we constantly made fun of each other's ign. He was always so happy and full of joy, and I will miss him more than words can describe. Mineverse won’t be the same without him and I will miss his random posts on my wall more than anything and our back and forth banter. I will always cherish our time spent together on the mod team and just getting to be friends in general. Rest in Peace MaxNinja, I’ll miss you. @Janice: Max, Days turned into a week, and I knew something happened when you never messaged me back, especially during Christmas. I just never expected it to be so heartbreaking. I kept trying to deny it. It’s still very hard, but I’m healing . . . little by little. I’m grateful to have all the support from our friends, so don’t worry. I absolutely loved knowing you. You were my best friend. I found it so fascinating and beautiful how we were able to form such a close bond even if we were thousands of miles apart. There was no judgment; we really trusted and loved each other. You were so excited to tell me about your life, about college, about your dream car, and about your love of swim whenever you got the chance. You would stay up just to talk to me due to my busy schedule. You would always give me the best advice. You were so incredibly wise beyond your years. I still remember all the times we would talk about the stupidest things but end up laughing so hard until our stomachs hurt. You taught and supported me so so much. I learned from the best, and look at me now. It was all you. You were always there for me. Always. There's still so much I want to tell you, but it's hard to find the words. It's really difficult to find people like you. I'm so incredibly happy to have known you. I hope you’re having the best time in heaven. I'm never going to forget you. I love you, and I miss you, Max. Always and forever. Love, Janice If you have any stories or memories of Max, feel free to share them. He would want us to look back at all the fun and smiles we had. As we look towards 2022, don’t take life for granted. We only have one. Hug those you love. Tell them you love them no matter how cringe it can be. Capture memories through pictures and videos. Live in the moment every day. From Noobcrew, Matt, and myself, we wish you all a very happy and healthy new year. Let’s make 2022 count!
