    Our hearts are heavy today with the loss of a dear family friend. Maddie, I will greatly miss stopping by and visiting you and catching up on what the kids are doing. I honestly enjoyed meeting you in the hallway at just the right time to bring up your groceries. I enjoyed our many conversations over the years. We will miss your smile and hearing you say ” O my goodness look how big you kid’s are getting” You were the most faithfull person I have ever known and I know you are at peace with your family in Heaven. We love you Maddie, and we will miss you forever. Love, The Smiths.

    i was introduced to maddie a few years back by matt her tenant at 16 haslet street. i thought from the get-go that she was a fun woman who really seemed to enjoy life and the ones around her. i admired her independence and always saying like it is and being forthright. i hope that i have the spunk she had at her age. it was a pleasure to know her and to watch … law and order with her 🙂

    forever in your friend’s hearts —
