HELPER - Our "Little Angel" Maddux Joseph Candido Rogers came to this earth on June 24, 2004. Maddux was born to loving parents Melissa and Adam, and big brother, Mason.
From day one Maddux's life was a battle. He was life flighted hours after birth. They discovered multiple heart and lung defects. But Maddux fought through all his surgeries and was a little fighter till the end. Then on Dec. 12, his little body was just too tired to fight. He went home to Heaven to be with God.
Maddux had a love for family. One of his favorite pastimes was picking on his big brother Mason and uncle Austin. Maddux loved music and loved very much to dance. Maddux rolled anywhere his little heart desired. He always welcomed a game of ball throwing. Maddux enjoyed going to his "Amas" house. That meant he was going to Grandma Sally's house. Maddux was a very loving boy and we will all miss him more than words can express. We would give anything just to hear those little words "Mama" and "Dada" just one more time!
