Little Maverick "May" Sundeen, the son of Chris and Natalie Sundeen of 3241 Hwy. 42, had his tonsils removed in Macon on Thursday, Oct. 18. There were reports that an artery was hit during surgery; and May was put in ICU while doctors treated bleeding issues. Five days later, on Tuesday morning, he was released to go home. On Tuesday afternoon, May reportedly became sick from swallowing blood and vomited, causing more bleeding. Monroe County EMS was dispatched to the home and rushed the boy to the Monroe County Hospital emergency room. EMS director Matt Perry said they devoted every re- source they had to saving the boy but they were unable to do so. Maverick was the grandson of Superior Court Judge Bill Fears and Joyce Fears of Jackson, and attended Forsyth UMC pre-school. A private funeral was held Friday, Oct. 26. The fam- ily requested donations in memory of Maverick be made to Eagles Land- ing First Baptist Church preschool ministry in McDonough.
