Max Goodloe, who died about two years ago, was my father's first cousin. They were both from Tennessee. Max came to Richmond with his business. He later brought his father (who was my father's "Uncle Max") Richmond, also. I came to Richmond twenty-five years ago to attend Union Theological Seminary. Now I am back here as the pastor of the Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church.
When Max died, just after I moved back here, I telephoned my condolences to his son, Max (my second cousin) whom I have never met.
