Will always remember all the fun we had going yard sailing, playing RummyQ, going out to dinner, and just having coffee & cake together in Greenwood Lake all summer. So many laughs.

There are so many memories to look back on that I have trouble thinking of any particular one. I remember the many times the Jaycee-ettes got together and made Christmas ornaments in the Bueckner basement, and we distributed them to the kids all over town. I don't want to think how many years ago that was, but it was a joyful time for us. Madeline was a vital part of our fun, and kept us in stitches as we painted outside the lines. She was my son Danny's Godmother, and a much loved member of our family. I hope her family can be consoled by the fact that many, many people loved Mad dearly, and she will be greatly missed.

Love always John, Renee, Dana & families,
Henrietta xo

My favorite memory:
Summer of 2014 - Soccer Worldcup
Madeline and I sat on the couch at the shore and watched the Germany vs Brazil game. She celebrated every goal with me (8-0 for Germany) like it was the first one.
So greatfull that I was able to meet her.
A beautiful woman with a beautiful soul!

With all the love,
