I became friends with Maddy on our group travel Birthright trip to Israel at the end of 2017. I hit it off talking to Maddy immediately upon arriving at the airport, I stood with him in line, sat next to him on the plane and on the bus often, I was roommates with him at the hotels, so I talked to him extremely often for the duration of the entire trip. My vibe of him is I could sense that he was such a sweet, upbeat, gentle, wholesome, fun, well-rounded, ethical, fun-loving, funny, outgoing, well-intended, selfless guy with such an amazing personality and such a respectable character. I could just immediately tell he was a guy with the highest of character and his personality was a perfect balance of all the best, most respectable and wholesome qualities that you would want in a friend. I could tell that Maddy had a huge heart and his ability to talk to literally everyone on the trip and become friends with everyone was amazing. He was such an incredibly affable and likeable guy. His personality was one of a kind. You could tell he was the type of person that genuinely wants you to feel good about yourself when you're around him. I wish I could write more, because I remember so much about him and the way he was on the trip and the way he made others and myself feel. He was the type of guy you can't find a bad thing to say about him. He was truly the most wholesome guy and one thing that was remarkable about him was his emotional intelligence. I would love to share more memories about him.
