My dear, dear friend for decades--- I know you are at peace now but want you to know there is a hole in my heart. I treasured the time we spent as friends and as hard as it is to let you go, we all want you to RIP. Love you always...

Madeline is fondly remembered as a part of my Rosary High School years. My twin sister Dorothea and I were friends with her and shared some smiles and fond memories. May God bless her family .
