I loved Dr. Word! He was a great man and taught me some radiology when I was in training and did a rotation with his group. He always had a smile on his face!Holly Stewart, M.D.

I am so sad to hear about Dr. Word's passing. He always had a smile on his face and treated everyone in the office with kindness, I will miss that. Last time I rolled through Lubbuck, Eunice made me a sandwich and told me all about the wonderful life her and Max had together. It was very apparent that she loved Max very much. Max Word will be missed by many.

Dear EuniceJust received notification of Max’s passing. I met him at an Emerson alumni reunion several years ago & found him to be a delightful man. You two were suited for each other & fate had made the right decisions about your future.You were a dear friend of my sister, JoAnne, which has been my connection for years. Also, my friendship with the Bottger family kept me in touch with Max’s health issues.My sincere sympathies to you as you mourn Max’s passing and celebrate a mans life so worthy of all the accolades of his work & family associations. It was always apparent how much that you loved him. And, how much he treasured you.We know how much he will be missed.Love,LeEtta Warren BennettSalem, SD

Met Dr Word in November of 1983 at the large RSNA show in Chicago. He quickly became on of my favorite radiologists based on his demeanor, fairness and kind approach to interactions with those of us on the commercial side of medical imaging technology. His son Jon was briefly in that business and has become a lifelong friend. My condolences to the family

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Word. I worked with him for at Methodist Hospital, then at Covenant Hospital. We always enjoyed his annual parties for the radiology staff and his singing of "Please Release Me." :)He was loved and will be missed by all who knew him! Rest in Peace, Dr. Word.
