Maddie, so easy to love, she stands beside me on my Facebook picture along with Sophia. Now she stands with her Mother, Cheryl and my son, Paul Anthony, not to mention mine and Jeanette's baby brother, Paul Mercer. Many members of our family too numerous to mention. "What a day that will be when we all get to heaven, what shouting there will be when we all see Jesus." Aunt Mary❤️

One of the sweetest young ladies I had the pleasure of teaching. She always had a smile and a quick laugh. Heaven has gained another angel.
