So sorry to hear that Aunt Madlyn passed. She was always so kind to me when I was married to Chris and when Jim and I were in school together. I was always so glad to see her when we ran into each other. My prayers are with all of her family.
What a great friend and bridge partner. I will miss her bright smile and subtle sense of humor——a real lady in every respect!
Ruth Ann and Mary Jane, Please know that I am keeping you in my prayers. I just loved your mother. So many, many happy memories. She put the seat covers on my first car. I think Dad convinced her to do it. I remember going to your house, all the 4-H things we did, just being neighbors and most of all visiting with her after church. I was sad when she was not able to come any more. I loved her smile and laugh and she always asked about my family and Chuck’s family. God bless you all and her. She is now in her rightful place in heaven watching over us and guiding us from above. Peace be with you
Sorry for your loss.
We are so sorry for your loss, please accept our deepest condolences and sympathy. Losing Mom and granny is so hard.
Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Very sorry for your loss.
Madlyn was a lovely lady. I enjoyed her presence in our Red Hat group for several years, and we were sorry when poor health made her drop out. I know that she is now well and happy in Heaven, and for that I thank God. May God grant His peace and comfort to her families during this difficult time.
