I grew up with Madaline back when we could stay out until daddy turned on the porch light. Her mom & my mom were best friends & her dad & my dad grew up together. Picnics, cook outs, bingo, anything family oriented, we we're part of it.
I knew her as a softball ref also. She was good at alot of sports.
Very kind, loved her family.
