Update on cbn member “ Maddog's “  Wife.

   Sadly, on  Nov. 23rd  CBN member, fine builder ,  and friend “Maddog” suffered the loss of his wife “Janet”, after battling her illness since diagnosed in Sept .  As you can imagine, he could use some words of encouragement.   After talking to him, (unless personal and private messages) I think it is best to leave any well wishes here in the comments as not to bombard his email or pm box.  Just leave your comments below, he will then  be able to  read them  as he can , and reply  as / when / if   he can at the time . Maddog is a great builder and a great friend to many on CBN and in the cbg community, and we hope to get him back soon. Too many of us know  the feeling of the loss of a loved one .

Hang in there buddy .  …..R.I.P Janet .

Hi Maddog, sorry to hear of your loss.


Hey Maddog. I know it's hard but let it out. Yell, scream do what you have to. Don't care about who hears you. just let it out. Any time you feel it let it out. I've lost friends and family as well. I know how hard it is. All I can say is let it out. 

Strenght to you Bro MADDOG ,for your lost, our prayers go out to you, may you fam & friend be there for you in your time of sorrow. and may she rest in Peace, God bless!

When Uncle John told me about this last month it near broke my heart. Patrick there's no one at CBN more talented and kindly and humble than you. I don't like knowing that someone I admire so much is greiving...

Patrick last night I had a dream about the "Maddog and Uncle John CBG Fest by the River'. It never got out of the planning stage in real life but in my dream you were up on stage singing this to us...

Silent J, it's not nice to make me cry.

"Thanks Pick, Uncle John & others for an insight into Maddog and Janet, losing a life long partner is something I would definitely find hard to cope with, R.I.P. "Mrs Maddog", and my sincere best wishes to Patrick and family for the future. 


Maddog lost his dad a few years back.  I only met him once.  A big old boy with dignity.  He had been a teacher, commercial fisherman, and sports referee- including the big time the NFL.  When he died, our Maddog's dad died,  Pick made a swamp witch dedicated to him with pics and NFL things.  And he gifted it to Maddog.  Just one of may generous things Pick has done.

Awwwwww Pat,So sorry for your loss ,my friend.Sending my deepest condolences.Sending a big cyber hug yer way and some healing vibes to your heart....

So sorry to hear of your loss, MD. Hope you can find peace in knowing that her pain is now gone and God has her now.
