I was in Madelynn’s fifth grade class and I am so blessed I got the opportunity to become friends with her! She was always so funny and always brought a smile to my face. Madelynn was a very sweet, beautiful, caring, and helpful person. My favorite memory was when we would run around at recess and laugh. Madelyn was in the class next to me this year and I was always so happy when I got to talk to her, she made me feel appreciated and remembered. Madelynn was a HUGE blessing in my life and I miss her so much. I was very devastated when I heard about what had happened. I’m praying for the family and everyone effected in the accident. I love and miss her so much and it’s going to be so rough without seeing her bright smile everyday! Your in a better place now🤍🕊🌻

Maddy’s simple Snapchat’s and calls/texts always made my day❤️ I met her in fifth grade but we’ve been friends since then. I hope you know how much we all love you and it isn’t fair how early you left us. I miss you maddy thank you for being a amazing friend and always being there to make someone laugh or smile. Her smile was always so pretty and so was she. Rip angel😍

Oh sweet Maddy. Our class will never be the same without you with us. I promise to do everything in my power to help your friends get through this and to never forget you. I’m so grateful that I have ended every school day with you with “Love you, bye!” because as your teacher, I love you more than you could ever understand. Love you, bye, angel ❤️🤟🏼

Madelynn was such a great friend. In 5th grade we used to hang out all the time. One of our last days in 5th grade when we decorated shirts and watched the movie was my favorite memory of most of the class. I miss you madelynn. It's so upseting that you went this way. I can't believe you are gone. Rest in peace Madelynn B McCain
