"Max had the most amazing 7 years possible. He said many times that he wanted to be 7 forever. I think deep down he knew he wasn't here for a long time. We are honored to have been his parents and grateful for every second," Max's parents, Shane Henderson and Missi Henderson, said in a statement, according to KAKE.
"We will honor his life by living out the rest of our earthly days with happiness and fun. We will miss him. Oh my, we will miss him," the statement continued. "We will have sad days, but we will not live sad lives. Please raise us up in prayer to help us to live as Max would wish. Without fear & full of happy times and fun. I would say fly high, but he's already there."
