  1. What wonderful memories come of Madeline. I grew up just across the street. Ronny and Robert were my two best friends for many years. Pricilla and Young Madeline were my baby sitters. Although all of this was a lifetime ago the memories remain fresh. To all her children, my deepest condolences. May she Rest In Peace.

  2. Forever in my heart and loving memories mom, I know you will be together with your brothers and sisters again. Son Kenny.
