The world lost an incredible young man when we lost you Maddy. Our family lost an irreplaceable gem.
Not many of us accomplish something worthy enough in life so that the world is a better place for us having lived. Maddy did. In 26 short years Maddy made a difference and people noticed.
When you stop to think of it, it is truly remarkable. His passion, his adventurous spirit, and his generous and thoughtful concern and commitment to making this world a better place was extraordinary. Especially for such a young man.
Maddy made all of us better. His legacy will live on through the stories we tell and re-tell and the photos we share.
Our lives will be forever blessed by you, dear Maddy. Our treasured, beloved gem.
