  1. I had just hung out with you with Elisabeth and Brax last Thursday 😕 before I headed out Sunday for Florida but I wish I could have been there for you more that night but I didn’t know anything was wrong.💔 and I had just talked to you early yesterday and I thought everything was okay until I got a unexpected call and said you were gone. But now I know Your not coming back,and I’m still figuring out how to be okay with that.🕊 R.I.P sweet boy 😕❤️

  2. Carla and Family. I’m so deeply sorry and heartbroken over sweet Maddie! He always had a smile on his face and was the sweetest boy! I will never forget him and Braxton when they were little boys singing to the top of their lungs to Adele “Rolling in the deep”. Maddie tried to always hit the high notes. My family and especially Braxton will miss him. God bless you all!

  3. Madison was a beautiful, loving little boy that grew into beautiful, loving young man. He had a kind and gentle soul. I will always remember his time with me and his Dad with great joy. I find solice knowing he is resting in peace with his Daddy that he missed so much. Love Tammy

  4. I had not seen Maddie since his dad passed away. I loved seeing him and Robby when they would visit his Dad and Tammy. He was the sweetest boy with beautiful eyes. I know he will be missed deeply but I’m sure his Daddy was so excited to see his baby again. Prayers to all who loved him!

  5. Maddie was an amazing friend and even more he was a brother to me. The day it all happen I remember getting out of the shower and getting a call from Braxton, I didn’t get to answer it in time but then when Robbie and kirsten both messaged me and I had read what had happen I began to scream crying to god and Maddie why him it could have been anyone else but him, i started to panic and hate my self for not seeing this sooner. These past couple of days without him here have been the hardest days of my life I’d never wish this kind of pain on anyone I loved Maddie he was family to me and I would have done anything for him.. I wish i could go back and stop all this from happening I’ll never be the same without my best friend in my life, he was always putting a smile on everyone’s faces and making everyone happy. He was never selfish and was always putting others before him self. He meant a lot to a lot of people especially my son maverick, my girlfriend Allana, and my self. He will never be forgotten and will always be missed. We all love you Maddie and hope you’re at peace, you truly were and will always be an amazing best friend and a gift from god.. I’ll forever pray for you and your family and will never forget and always appreciate the love and support from them, my family and my self will always be there for the Brown family at anytime. Rest easy now, and enjoy heaven. We love you Maddie..

  6. Why, why did it have to be you? You did not deserve it at all. Just wish we could go back to those late nights riding around with George and Braxton. Those long days and nights endlessly messing with George getting on his nerves. Or that one time we tackled him on to his brand new air matress he bought and popped it🤣🤦🏼‍♂️. Or that time we had that party back in the woods and you grabbed georges big ass skillet and had his whole refrigerator in that big ass pan. Or that night we threw flour and eggs on georges car cause he wouldnt take us somewhere. Or yhe one night when we pushed Georges car all the way down the street and steal it go out and smoke. 🤣🤦🏼‍♂️Or those long nights riding around in Sams truck drinkin beer and 4 lokos going through mud holes at the lake. Riding around bumping your favorite music and it was always your music listening to Don Trip, Starlito, Gucci Mane, then you would turn on some Waylon Jennings after Blac Younggsta Just turned off. You were absolutely the funniest person i knew. Got all my jokes from you . I remember you would always recite lines from Talledega Nights and make everyone crack up. The love i have for you will never be lost. You will always be my brother Maddy. #LLMADDY #legendsneverdie

  7. I hope your having the time of your life up there❤️ You will forever be missed by many

  8. Hunter, I will always remember you by your bright smile and sense of humor. You always made everyone in the room laugh! You always expressed to me that you were here for me anytime I needed anything, and I thank you for that. My best memory with you was the night we all left Braxtons house and walked to Walmart at 2 a.m. I had on flip flops and you gave me your tennis shoes and walked miles in your socks. After hours of walking we all finally got to where we were going. You, Maddie, were one of a kind. Your sweet soul will live on through the many friends you have on this Earth. Rest In Heaven, you are loved my so many.

  9. Joe, Carla, and the entire Greenwalt and Brown family. I am so sorry for your loss. I never got the privilege to know Maddie, but I’m sure he was a great young man. One that is gone from this earth entirely too soon. God has his arms around him now and he is with his dad and his mammaw Sherry until you can wrap your arms around him again.

  10. Carla and family, I am at a loss for words. I can’t understand things like this.No mother or family member should have to do this.I am praying for peace in your hearts at a time like this.Always carry the good memories with you,they by far out weigh the bad.Know that his Dad and mammaw Sherry are with him.My deepest sympathy and prayers are with you at this time.Stay strong and I love you guys.

  11. So very sorry for your loss you and your family have been in our thoughts and prayers.

  12. Andy, Dana, Jordan, and Jacob Hinton. We lived across the street from Maddy and Robbie for almost six years. Our boys were friends. My heart hurts for this family. Hunter was a good kid. My thought and prayers are with you all.

  13. Still remember cruising around in that old straight piped Merc you had in the middle of the night and that time we all rode to eville just to get a part from Autozone. fun times. Love ya buddy…

  14. Maddie was a wonderful, pleasant, kind, funny young man. We watched him grow up to be that great young man. I have so many wonderful memories of him going thru the steps of life. I know the loss of this young man is a loss for all, especially his family. I will remember him and love him forever. My thoughts, prayers, and love for the family. I will truly miss him.
