Dearest Sweet Madonna, I miss you...
Formerly of Akron
Dear One, A year has come and gone and we do so miss your laughter and your love. We think of you often and ask the blessings of the Goddess on your journeys in the Summerland, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and we will be looking for you at Samhain, BB, Nim
On this day of the anniversary of your death, I will always miss you.
Two memories came to me when I heard Madonna had left us...
...Madonna as Ereshkigal when we put on "Inanna's Descent to the Underworld" at Heartsong and again at Sirius Rising.
...Stopping at an ice cream parlor on the north bank of the Tarn River in southern France in mid-August - just a few weeks after the last time I saw Madonna - where Bunny and I were served by a woman who looked for all the world like Madonna's twin sister.
I'm glad I took those few minutes to talk with her in July. I only wish I had spent a little more time.
As I think of you I imagine a shinning radiant golden light, and my eyes fill with tears of joy.
I will hold you deep inside of me as an aspect of the Great Divine Mother. In all her many faces... loving, kind, compassionate, wounded, fierce, playful,
Dancing Wild Momma... truth teller, music maker, sacred Singer, Healer...
Holy, Holy, Holy.
Your love continues to heal the nooks and crannies of my heart.
I too can only hope to meet other souls as beautiful as yours.
Dearest Sufi Sister, Often I am looking for you behind the shelves at the Seed wearing your purple hat and coat. I know you are with me as I drive through the Valley watching the colors change. Dance on sweet friend, gentle Lady, whirl into the next plane of your Be-ing. Thanks for taking my hand and leading me to Ohio and then to Mother Cuyahoga. Salaam. Bright Blessings ever. Ygraine Alaria
Oh My Soul Sister! At Samhain I called to you, and your voice filled the planes.
Thank you, love, for gracing our lives! From your first Circle with us to your first Starwood, I watched your eyes glisten with magick!
So full of LOVE for the Goddess you always were...and now you and She
Dance together in the Summerlands.
I cherished all of you...from your wisdom, friendships, great laughs...even to your rants!
As Above, So Below!
You are the MoonHawk--Keep a watchful Eye on all of us who loved you, and guide us in our soul's evolutions--
healer, dancer, drummer, dreamer,
giggler, now ever-free woman.
I love you
May you, dearest Sister, in ALL-WAYS
Blesed BE! Pythia
I have lost my sister in every sense of the word. We have know each other through good times and bad since we were 14 years old. It is an understatement to say you left a hole in my life. I know you are happy and free. We will meet again.
Madonna, my heart is filled with tears of your passing. I will miss you. Your love and beauty will live in me and everyone that you touched.
Shinning Lady, Singing Soul
Your love is geniuine, your life is a true gift to us all. I now clearly understand the message of the winged heart. Thank you for this gift. I am full of gratitude to have been of service to you and yours during transistion. My memory of you is all these things and more. Words limiting... feeling is endless. I will see you on the round about...
Madonna, dear one...you hold a special spot in my heart. You always did, even though the years kept us separate. Memories of you and your now grown boys linger, always.
(Formerly of Akron...)
Well my sister you left first but so great are the memories that the canyons echoed your voice through the winds that touched me! I know that the Summerlands welcomed you!
Love always was your way and has let the homecoming been powerful. love to you all
Patterns, turning leaf, the hardness of stone are all
part of the turning wheel. Never forgotten always
changing and returning, restoring the balance that is
Over the years we have been many things to each other. We’ve shared roles of healer and receiver. I will always remember your smile, your loving presence with the knowledge and that they will always be with me in my heart.
Madonna, you sang joy,danced,and praticed joy into my life and all that you gathered to you. I will miss you and love you the rest of my life.The beauty you brought into this world is not diminish by your leaving here we will remember
Oh dear sweet Madonna,
Your smile shined through the darkest night.
Your heart filled a room with great love and light.
Though we do not share this Earth walk any longer,
my soul is filled with your love.
My life is all the more better for knowing you.
The legacy of your life will go on
in your sons and your new grandson.
Missing our late night talks.
Missing your gracious smile.
Missing your Goddess beautiful self.
Missing your healing hands and song.
With the help of my beloved husband Don I have learned that I will see you again each time I look up to the sky and see the stars shining brightly in the night for I know that you are helping them shine.
All my heart,
I will miss you dearly. And will always remember your laugh and smile.
You title was my Aunt, but you were more like a good friend and confidante to me. We shared some special times and a lot of late night talks. The trips to NY and LA would not have been the same without your bright eyes, positive energy, and beautiful smile.
I always admired what a great Mother you were to Josh and David and the special bond you have with them.
I will hold your smiling face dear to my heart, until I take that journey to a better place and we meet again....
Whew, where do I start??? So many cool memories. Your smile!!!! Starwood!! where you gave me confidence as a drummer. Autumn Meet in Florida and our week in the Key's!!! and on and on...........
You know that I know that you know!!!!!!rofl Peace and Love Sweetie
Oh my dear friend, if ever there was an odd pair, we were it. I'm grateful for every moment we spent together, laughing, crying, talking, or just quietly sharing each others presence. You changed me, Madonna. You showed me that life can be lived in trust and faith, and that the Universe truly is a safe place. I don't know that I'll ever be as brave as you were, but I promise you, I will try. I'm sure everything is clear and beautiful to you now. And I hope you see now how precious you were to us all. Beside the tears is always my great joy at the privilege of knowing you and all the great adventures we shared. I'll see you in the rain, my friend. Well done, good servant. Well done.
A beautiful person with loving hands.
Madonna once told me, "thanks for spending time with me so we could get to know eachother better." I felt honored by our sharing, also.
We will always remember how wonderful we both felt when we got off the massage table after her massage. :)
Mother to us alll, friend of all friends, spirit dancer, heart singer, miracle worker, vibrant fairy goddess... Madonna will sing through us all in life and after. Thank you amazing one for honoring us with your gifts. Smile, breathe, and love. My mother teacher giver friend and sister, My thoughts and spirit will forever be touched with your life!
I know this letter will find you full of unexplainable joy, peace and love as you move freely throughout the universe. Over the last couple of days I have felt a new and unusual protection and sincere unconditional love that I’ve only recalled experiencing one other time in my life. That one time is from a family “visit” my ancestors took me on. Since I made the contact, that I now understand was at your urging, I feel like I have a new guardian angel in the universe. I see by the quick and profound blessings that you’ve brought me during the last 48 hours that you are well pleased and it was in divine order. I thank you for allowing me to see your beautiful bright smile last night and the glow in your eyes that confirms to me how happy you are. By the way, thanks for that beautiful song, too. You really know how to get a message through. Now you can move about without ANY limitations and supernaturally continue your work in healing. You have profoundly reinforced to me over this last week that no matter what race, religion or culture we come from that we are all connected and the love still flows.
Iba se’ (I give honor) Lady Madonna
Madonna, take a left at the Milky Way and go straight on 'til morning. We'll miss you, Kiddo. Happy trails.
Tony and I were friends of hers.
At Starwood Madonna was one of the few she would allow to “work” on her back, being an excellent therapist and healer.
Madonna was often seen draped in many layers and would sail through crowds like a great ship with a confident captain.
Her passing is quite a mark in the passing of the old guard.
She is awesome still.

There are no words... only the feeling of having the wind knocked out of me and knowing the absence of light.
When I heard of you're passing I remembered they day you healed my
heart and life. What a wonderfull day that was. I also remember all
the times you had supported me in
all my endevors with great love and honor. May you're spirt dance free.
Palamahe'a ( Thank you my friend )
Madonna , Our forever friend, our anam cara, we will miss your beautiful smile, your zest for life, and your healing love which was poured out to all in need. As you take the moonlit path into the Summerland know that the Goddess waits to enfold you in Her gentle arms until you are ready to travel on. We will look for you at the rising of the sun and the setting of the stars and may we know and remember and love again.

Whenever the magick of the dance overtakes me, I remember the radiant smile, nurturing hug, and sacred charge Madonna gave me upon my initiation into the Sacred Dancers Guild. I greatly cherish my memories of that ceremony and the love I felt in the torch-lit circle deep in woods of Brushwood that July night. Madonna touched many lives with her love and beauty, and
I'm grateful that mine is one of them.
Madonna said that dance is the hidden language of the soul..... words fail me now, so I will simply dance daily and rejoice that Madonna still dances with me.
I love you, sister!
Charlotte & Family
Sorry to hear about the loss of your sister .I'm sure she will be missed by a lot of people. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and the family.
Madonna Moonhawk, one of my favorite people whose path I crossed all too rarely.
When we met a simple hug brought us both delighted smiles; and our friendship was born. She radiated compassion, caring in a tender manner for near-strangers and friends alike. She taught me dances of joy and celebration that I treasure still today.
I was/am honored to be her friend, and to have shared a bit of this life with her. My sincerest condolences and blessings to all who are touched by her passing.
To the Queen Mother and the Child Within, Madonna MoonHawk, to a woman who instills me with pride of her even knowing me....I give thanks for what she has given this Tribe and this Planet. I would not be a better person without the magic of my friend and Sister...Madonna. So Sister, you are closer to me now, unburdened with your humaness, free to work with Spirit and help us small ones become better each day of our lives. Thank you Sister, for smiling your smile, for showing innocence can be strong, and for creating the beauty of your Sons that the world may enjoy a bit more of you for the next seven generations. You will be locked in my Human sight until the time for us to meet again. Thank you for being a such large part of my Daughters, Tia and Tara, my mate Daniella....and thank you for giving me trust that somewhere....there are more people like you.....Wah Do! Da Naho!
May you soar and sing with the Angels.
The spirit of our dear Madonna is now with the Prophets and great teachers of this modern age.
There is no doubt for those that knew her Sufi heart, the great wisdom just below the light (Ya Nur) that glowed from her soul.
Surely with all the Love and Compassion she lived, she is remembered among the blessed teachers, friends, and healers that surrounded her.
We will miss her and find her in the joy and love of her sons Josh and David.
Tecumseh said these words about a good life: “live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life . . . Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.”
Madonna Moonhawk did this. She certainly lived her life!
Madonna gave us all, friend or stranger alike [although few stayed as strangers], her wonderful smile, her awareness and her interest. She taught us with her truthful words, her compassionate heart, her respect for herself and others, and her delight in her experiences. Sharing time with her was sharing some of what makes life on this planet beautiful. Perhaps, if we are lucky, we will see her smile again in the starlit night or in evenings around a fire. If not, even so, her smile and her laugh will be remembered. I am thankful for the honor of having known her.
Madonna was a gifted healer and we didn't know each other very well, but her light will be missed. May she shine on in all our memories. When someone needed healing, I just knew to send them to her. (Riannon-Lia)
May your spirit touch all of those forever as you have touched us in life. I'll always treasure the laughter, joys and tears.
Bless you Madonna you were always a bright light in my life. May that light continue to shine upon us all.
Madonna, will always be remember with warmth and honor. Her love for life and community was a great gift she left in the heart of many. Madonna it was an honor to know you, and always a pleasure to spend time with you. Though your body has been laid to eternal rest, your spirit and soul will live on in all that you have touch. May your spirit know peace and joy in the summerlands.
Madonna, you have lifted my spirits whenever we have been together. Watching you move through our community and touch the lives of others has brought joy to my heart. Rest easy in the Summerlands!
I was sorry to hear of the passing of Madonna. I graduated from St. Mary's with Madonna but have not talked with her since that time. However, all I talk to about her passing have nothing but kind words to say about her. My condolences to her family.
Thank you for touching my life and for the healing you shared with every massage and conversation. Blessed Be and safe journeys.
Bright Spirit, always cheerful, always optimistic no matter what! Your Light spread a joyful glow wherever you were. I'll always remember your smile! Dance now in the Summerlands and shine your beautiful Light there! Blessed Be, and Merry Meet again.
Ahhh.. Now is the time to rest, my sister. Your unconditional love will live on forever through the actions of those you have touched with your healing, light, beauty and warmth. How fortunate we all are to have had you in our lives!... and thank you for the birthday gift you bought..but didn't have time to give to me because you were on your way in ascension, flying to Goddess! When purple glitter falls out of the sky... I'll know.. I love you, and you are in my heart, remembered, and cherished... thank you Fluffy.
Madonna--Many will remember your warm smile and the sight of you bright form on the Brushwood meadow--may your time in Summerland be filled with the same light and healing.
Fly free sweet spirit, on Earth or better.
Suffer not the bondage of the flesh.
Become your Light body and enjoy your new freedom.
Know you lived long and well, and that you became the best you could be. You raised wonderful sons, and relieved and healed hundreds of peoples suffering. Your laughter, songs and your dancing spirit inpspired many.
You changed the world by your very presence. Your laughter still rings in my heart and shall forever. Thank you for for the truth you gave me, and every moment we shared in friendship.
The Mother shall miss your feet upon her breast.
I mourn your passing dear one.
I shall remember what you taught me and the energy you held.
Your memorie shall live in the many people who love you.
I send you gratitude for having been here to share my Earth walk.
In wordless beauty, fly silently back to the Earth to sleep
Like a lovely leaf in Autumn
To be reborn again
For now sweet spirit, Be free!
Until we meet again.
Madonna, it was indeed an honor to have known you. Thank you for what you were to all of us.
We remember Madonna with such fondness, and were so saddened to read about her death. We know her family will miss her deeply. You will all be in our prayers, especially Josh, David and Alam. In Love and Light, Kim, Jackie, Justin and Christopher
May angels of light guide you on your new journy.Thank you for your beauty and love and peace.And for being so special in so many ways. Peace
You will me missed greatly even though we feel your still here. Thank you for your diversity, love, friendship and guidance.
Be free, be strong, be proud of who you have been, know that you will be mourned and missed, that no one can replace you, that you have loved and are beloved.
Move beyond form, flowing like water, feeding on sunlight and moonlight, radiant as the stars in the night sky. Pass the gates, enter the dark without fear, returning to the womb of life to steep in the cauldron of rebirth. Rest, heal, grow young again. Be blessed. (Starhawk)
Be well my friend.
Madonna, you touched my life more deeply than you probably ever knew. Thank you for being a part of my life. I wish you nothing but beautiful journeys and joyous reunions in the Summerlands. Blessed Be, dear teacher.
Mino and I just met Madonna this past July and we fell in love with her Immediately. She greeted us with open arms and an open heart. And with her beautiful smile, she woke us up and reminded us that there are still some truly good people out there. She is a true healer. We are forever in awe of her spirit and we will be forever grateful for having the chance to have known her. We love you Madonna.
I have only met with Madonna a handful of times, still her smile displayed and friendship extended will always be remembered.
Madonna's gentle kindness,wonderful smile,and nurturing spirit will be greatly missed.We were truly blessed to have had her as a role model.Fawn,Brandon,Jacob
May your journeys be safe into the Summerland and the hearts of your family & friend's be filled with peace knowing you are again with the Lord & Lady. Blessed Be
Madonna's spirit of love will dwell in my heart forver. Wind to your wings, dear lady.
Madonna is a beautiful healing spirit who lives as the walking breath.
Peace and smiles to all, in loving memory of who she was and in honor of who she is now.
With healing hands, with harmonious songs, with humility, with joy, with beauty, with dancing, with colourful clothing, with the boat of her smile and with boundless love...Madonna made this world a better place.
She taught me this song.."Spirit of Peace, to your cause we give our strength, that Love may reign and war may cease, Mir, Mir, u Mir."
Peace beautiful Sister and Blessings to your family as they celebrate your life.
Madonna will be greatly missed in the community. She has touched my heart with her quick smile and easy manner. I wish her a blessed transition as she begins her journey into the hereafter.
To dance around the fire with such a bright light is one of the greast gifts we can recieve. I now carry that light inside and will dance brighter because of her. To a very good egg, safe journeys till our next dance. peep-peep
Madonna was creative, compassionate and caring. We will all miss her tender and truly healing spirit and presence.
I miss you, but wish you BRIGHT BLESSINGS!
Madonna will stay in my heart as she has been since St. Mary's days. She had a way of loving everyone she met and she left a part of herself with me. I am blessed to have known her even though briefly. I know that she is with God and at peace.
