Dear sweet friend, you were such an inspiration to me. Your sweet smiles and joy you brought no matter what was going on. I love you dear Sister. You will be missed! I have no doubt you are in heaven and reunited with your loving husband Gene❤️

Madeleine was my dear friend and next-door neighbor for more
than thirty years. I saw her almost every day, and she called me several times a day. Madeleine was always upbeat
and dealt with unhappy situations by working in the yard
and talking to God. Madeleine
was a devout Christian, and had
all of the qualities one would expect to find in an outstanding
Christian. She had a very sad early life and was mistreated
horribly growing up in a convent.
She had a great sense of humor
and was fun to be with. After Gene passed away and her memory problems worsened,
Madeleine and several other
friends and neighbors would go
out to eat and to movies often.
Madeleine only weighed about
ninety pounds, but she baked a
dessert every day and offered
part of the pie or cake to others.
Madeleine told me that her doctor told her to gain some weight, or
he would drop her as a patient.
The next time she had an appointment with him, she put
rocks in her pocket, so she would
weigh more. Later she told the
doctor what she had done. He
laughed and said patients like
her kept him working every time
he thought about retiring! I
loved Madeleine dearly and miss
her so much, but I know that she
is young again and enjoying. her
time with our Lord in Paradise.
May God comfort and strengthen
all of the family members and
friends who were affected by the
tragic accident and deaths. I am so very sorry!❤️❤️

My dear Madeleine... You added much joy and love to my life as I served the past 8 years as your mail carrier. I always smiled when I saw you in your beautiful yard, and much enjoyed our numerous conversations over the years. My heart is broken and the family tragedy has devastated me,; you and yours will surely be missed here on earth. You are a beautiful soul. Rest In Peace my dear friend; I will miss you...
