Paul, Holly, Paula, Kari, and family. I am so sad to see that Madeline has passed away. She always treated me like a daughter. Our families made many memories together. Madeline was certainly a character. She and Paul could make a person laugh like no other. I'm sure she has found my dad, by now, in heaven and they are enjoying being with Jesus.  I'm so sorry for all of you. I understand the pain. Much love, Tammy Parrett Tidrow
