Growing up, I spent so much time at the Lignell household. While most little brothers were too annoying to hang out with, Maddy was always fun to be around. He had a sense of humor unlike any other and a laugh that could make you cry. He had a knack for beating me every time in air hockey too which always earned him a sucker punch in the arm. I will always remember his hugs after choir concerts and musicals, congratulating me for a job well done.
Hanna, Shayna, Oliver, and Jordana, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I’m so heartbroken that he left this world too soon. Maddy was the best little brother, son, and friend anyone could ever have. I’m lucky to have known him.
