Our Dearest Mader,celebrated her life with deep devotion to her whole family. During many years as mother, grandmother and great grandmother Mader always opened her heart to everyone as her family grew; cherishing each person as precious, in her life. As we reflect, let us remember Mader for how deeply she celebrated the love of her family and her devotion to others. Let us all continue to cherish others as Mader has, as she continues her journey of love and devotion in eternal life. For these are some of the greatest gifts she she has given each family member.

Reflecting on mother, grandmother, great grandmother: I remember her like it was yesterday suddenly, now, we are given the opportunity to reflect on the loss and reality of Mader. I understand "memorial" in Pensacola News Journal. It is a wake up call to make the most of each day, just as she did, and to celebrate life and to cherish those closest to her. I know that when I journey to where she lived the home will seem strangely quieter with her gone. I also know that this is not a final curtain for her; she believed in life beyond the grave. Meanwhile, I cherish the memory of Mary Alvarado. Now, there was a WOMAN!
