Rest In Peace Madeline. I am honored that I was able to work with you for so many years. To your family my heart goes out to you all.

Madeline is a True Inspiration to me. From the first time I met her I knew she was something Special. She used to make me laugh, because I am somewhat handy in things, and if she knew, she could get something done at no cost, she was so there. But, on the other hand she was one of the most generous people I know. I used to love it, after I completed, not 1 or 2 jobs, she would say to me "If your not too tired" could you look at this. I So Love this Woman, and Madeline I deeply love and miss you. I will always be thinking about you, and what you have taught me, I Love You, you are my "Girlfriend".

May God's heavenly angels surround your Mom and send
peace to your family.
