SHAD WOULD LIKE TO THANK:
Special Thanks should be given to some people that have been instrumental in the enrichment of my life.
My beyouteaful (beautiful...) wife and best pal, Tanya... she's really great at everything she does, especially at being a mom.
My kids, Ryan, Jayden and hayley.... two roses and a sunflower in my garden.
My Mom and Dad, Tanya's Mom and Dad (thanks for the tile....)
...And other friends i've forgotten to mention. also, i must certainly thank Jesus Christ for always being there, even though i can't see him. He made an awesome sacrifice for me, perhaps he shouldn't be at the bottom of this list. yes, i'm a Christian, but i'm not going to preach to you so you don't have to avoid me at shows or around town or whatever. thanks to all the people who given their time to share bits of good advise and pearls of wisdom. rock & roll!!!!!
