It just breaks my heart that I will never get to see Madalyn or hug her anymore. Our brothers played Little League together and we became fast friends forever. You will be missed my sweet and kind friend. We will see you again….

Madalyn was a classmate of mine at SJC for many years, and never failed to deliver
a funny story or a joke. She was pleasant to be around. My deepest condolences to her family.
