One of my favorite memories of you, Madeline, will always be our phone chats. Even though I saw you daily when you’d stay with us, I always enjoyed our phone chats either when you were in Florida or when you were here and Mike and Marie were off with Gee somewhere exciting. We’d catch up on everything, I’d make sure you had what you needed or we’d come by with a pizza... you treated us as family, like another Mother. I want you to know how much I appreciate all you did for us no matter what, your kindness, thoughtfulness and your shining personality will never be forgotten.
