I met Madeleine in 2014, just after the passing of her beloved Anthony. She was a strong lady my husband Michael and I helped her through a tough time. We moved her from her home in Boca Raton to Century Village Boca. After 14 months her life was spent at her new home, Grand Villa of Deerfield Beach. She was very social and loved her meals. I joined her twice a week for lunch in the dining room. We Shared many laughs and stories. She loved whenever my grand children visited. She always had the biggest smile on her face when I shared photos and videos with her. She was like a mom to me. She spent her last days in our home. She will be forever missed.
