The men that I hope are watching over me, and feeling proud. My Dad, Max Wayne Madden(Shumate/LaChaumette)
And my Grampa, Melvin Alan Rose.

I miss you Dad, you to Grampa. I know you guys would be so proud of, and so wrapped around the fingers of, these kids.
Thank you for making me the honorable, and loving man that I am today. I wouldn’t be half the Father, or Man, that I am, without you.
