The Maddox family and my family went to Judson together for many years. Harold was my dad’s best friend and they worked on the new Judson church building together. I had sleepovers with Marilyn when we were young. I remember one time we were going to bed and all his kids (and myself included ) had to give him a hug. There wasn’t a better man to walk this earth. I will always remember him fondly.
