  1. Aunt Madge I just can’t believe you’re gone & how fast you left us! My heart is absolutely broken to pieces & it’ll take a long time to heal from this pain I’m in! I will miss our visits & long phone calls we had & never ever forget how much you meant to me! I LOVE YOU & look forward to the day we meet again!❤️

  2. CandleImageMama Madge was everyone in the neighborhoods “other mother’. She loved all of us as her own unconditionally. She loved the Lord, and if you didn’t know our Lord and Savior she made sure you did any and every time you talked to her. Hanging out at their house growing up was the same as hanging out at your own house. It was home and that was because she treated all of us as family. She was the walk and she was the talk every day of her life. She made an impact on your heart that will never pass. It’s not just how well we run the race that matters most, but how well we pass the baton. Mama Madge passed the baton, she passed it well. She is home with our Lord and Savior, Jesus and believe me, she would want you to know all is well. Love you, miss you, hug you, kiss you Mama Madge. Tell my mom and dad hello and give Uncle Charlie a big bear hug for me!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  3. Aunt Madge, you will live in our hearts forever. Your faith and teaching, the very life you lived will sustain us through our grief
