Judy, I'm not able to come to visitation, but I wanted you to know how sorry I am for your loss. I always thought highly of both of your parents, & I remember all the fun we had as kids at your house. I still think of the first boy/girl party you had in your garage. Remember dancing to "Put your Head On My Shoulder" about ten times? I'm sure you will miss Madeline in ways you won't expect. Her picture looks just like I remember her!
