Dear Ted, Tim and Ben,
I am so sad to learn of Madeline's passing. What a wonderful lady and friend she was to me and so many others. I think of her often when I sit down at the computer as she is the one who tutored me through doing the first newsletters for Walker. It was the beginning of many fun collaborations that Madeline and I would do together. And always working with Madeline was a joy and filled with laughter. She was bright, creative and giving as she always brought the best out in people. She will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
My deepest condolences to the Samples family. I only knew Madeline for a short time from art school, but am glad that I did. She was a very kind woman, a talented artist, and had a wonderful sense of humor. I enjoyed talking with her at school about art techniques and artists. She will be very missed.
We will keep you and your family in our hearts.
Jimmy Hill and family

So sorry to hear about Madeline's passing. She was a gracious and talented lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your sons.
Ted, this message is from Tom Schreiber's sister, Renée. I am so sad to hear the news of Madeline's death. She was such a good friend and gave selfless support to Lynn, when Lynn was ill. She will always have a place in my heart. My very best to you and your sons, Renée Crackel
Ted, please know that my thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.

Her smile and generosity touched many of us and we are all so blessed to have had her as a part of our lives.
Ted, my deepest condolence to you and your family. I feel very fortunate to have received sage advice from Madeline, which I'm still using today.
Ted - I am so sorry to hear of Madeline's passing. I remember when you both were dating. She was so special. Carol and I are praying for you and the boys.
Madeline will be forever young,forever missed, and forever loved by all who had the good fortune to know her. Memories of her spirit,courage,and generosity will never fade. Our deepest condolences to you Ted and to all the family.
Ted, I haven't had the privilege of meeting you, but have had the beautiful opportunity to know your amazing and beautiful wife at Texas Academy of Figurative Art. She made the room light up with her beautiful smile and gentle spirit. She exudes grace and love.....she is and will be greatly missed. You and your family are covered in prayer. Love, Shelly Hubel (fellow TAFA student).
Had the pleasure of knowing Mrs Samples and Ted as a residential concierge. Her wit, wisdom will be missed. She will always be remembered Just outside the front door. She is loved, and will be missed by me.
Ted...very sorry to hear of Madeline's passing. I remember some great times when the two of you lived in Coronado. She was a jewel. Take care//Sturg
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys during this difficult time.
May God's grace and strength be with you.
I'm sure that Madeline fought the good fight and now it is left for you to do until you see her again.
Madeline was my student at TAFA and it was such a privilege to know her. You can see from her photo that she was beautiful, and she was as beautiful inside as she was outwardly. I am blessed to have known her and count her as a friend. I will miss her.

Dear Ted, Tim and Ben and family,
I am deeply sorry for your loss and will keep you all in my prayers. I first met Madeline at UCSD in 1976 when she was a computer science student. Madeline was one of only 4 women computer science graduates in her class, which was a significant achievement in those days. She was always dedicated and undaunted in her pursuit of her degree. But what she was particularly known for was her ability to cheer her fellow students in laughter, show insightful concern for others, and encourage all to success. She surely has been your inspiration over these past years and will be very much missed. Be assured that she is still looking toward you with love from Heaven! God bless you!

Ted, Tim and Ben: Kathy and I send our sincere condolences and prayers. What better day to be with the Lord than on Easter Sunday. We will keep all of you in our prayers.
Dand and Kathy Pierce
Madeline meant the world to me and changed my life forever. Her generous heart, loving guidance and words of wisdom will never be forgotten. If a measure of a meaningful life is by the lives you touch and change for the better, she surely should have been proud. Our love to all of you.
Our positive thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time - God Bless.

Ted, Tim and Ben,
Our hearts and thoughts go out to you at this time of deep sorrow. Fond memories of the past shall never fade, and will strengthen your ties to each other. We offer our prayers during this difficult time. God Bless you.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Samples family. I was lucky to have met Madeline and know how much she touched the life of my little sister. She'll be missed by all.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I got to know Madeline when I "worked" with her on a huge project at the Walker School. It wasn't work though because everything Madeline organized was pure fun. She was funny, kind, creative and we all wanted to do our best for her. Some sparkle has gone out of the world now that she is not here with us. Ted, Tim and Ben, God bless you and heal you though I know you will always wish she were here.

Madeline was one of a kind. Her zest for life was contagious. She could light up a room with her smile. She adored her family and we adored her. She will be missed by all of us. Sally Wingo
She entered my family by marriage, and left as a dearly loved friend, brave and inspirational. I will carry her memory in my heart and through Ted, Tim and Ben, whom I treasure.
We were extremely saddened to hear of Madeline's passing! Our families lives will be entwined forever and the wonderful memories will be a constant reminder of the great times we had together! Wish we could be there to express this in person! All our love, Rhonda and Randy Stapleford, Palm Coast, FL

Ruthie and I are so sorry to hear this. We are truely saddened and will pray for you and the boys.
Madeline was a joy and she will be missed everyday. You have our deepest sympathies.
Ted,Ben and Tim--We were sadden by the passing of Madeline-she was the shinning light of the Samples family ! You are in our prayers and thoughts during this challenging time--may God provide you strength. Sincerely, Tim and Barb Roels
Madeline really was an inspiration to everyone around her. I will strive to do better in my life, knowing she is watching down on us.
Madeline was always a joy to be around; so vibrant, energetic and full of ideas. She will be sorely missed.
Ted, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Even though we only met a few times, I quickly recognized that Madeline was a special person. Creativity, a friendly disposition, and love of family and friends were her trademarks. My heart goes out to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Madeline and Ted through their seach with helping their parents find a good place to live in their retirement. Madline's caring spirit and generous heart was evident in the great care she took making sure her family was happy and doing well. She would light up the room with her smile and kind words. Her kindness was an inspiration in how to treat others.
Madeline had a passion for painting and she made lively and colorful portraits that were gifts to her family and friends. Words like generous, loving, intelligent, beautiful and funny fall short to describe her enormous spirit. She'll be greatly missed.
I always looked forward to hearing Madeline's insightful observations at our monthly book club meetings. I've enjoyed discussing books and life with her. She will be missed.
