My family and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. Max was funny and kind and made an impression even on those he met only briefly. We will continue to keep your family in our thoughts.

Prayers to family and friends of Max. I taught Max at Cartersville High School, and I am heart-broken over his death. My stepson’s earthly death ended at age 16, just a year before I met Max. May you all feel the comfort and peace that only God can give.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. I had the privilege of teaching Max in second grade at Stevens Creek Elementary. I remember him as a bright, charismatic, kind young man with a witty personality. May you find comfort and peace in the arms of God.

Max was always like my second little brother. I have so many memories growing up of serving at church with Max and him coming over and spending time with our family. Max was so kind and caring and touched so many lives in Augusta. I’ll never forget his smile and I know that he’s already off exploring on his next adventure and looking down on us all. Most importantly, thank you Max, for being a friend for my brother when he needed it most after moving here, and that is the most wonderful gift you have given our family. You are always in our hearts.
