I remember meeting this family back when I was like 4-5 years old at Holy Cross Catholic Church. Madea was one of the sweetest women that I'd ever met and the nicest mother figure ever. When my mother first got sick she came and brought her a statue of the Virgin Mary to put out in her flowers and we kept that all that time until we put her to rest and also my other two sisters and my dad. We've got to remember that prayers and God heals all. I love you all and please know that I am here if you need anything.
